Xuse manages requirements, use cases & other artefacts that drive software design. Xuse focuses on clear documentation & communication. It defines an XML data model for requirements & use cases with XSLT providing multiple derived views: HTML/SVG/PDF.

Note there is no GUI for entering requirements, however another project (https://sourceforge.net/projects/xguse/) will provide a GUI.

    I have been using Xuse for several of my projects. I find the command line editing gives me the power to quickly make edits to requirements. The greatest benefit however is that the requirements can be version controlled using GIT or SVN. Getting used to the HTML tags supported by XUSE could be challenging. Its an excellent product nevertheless.
