The question of tools to support Agent UML is an old question that I
investigated last year, several candidates: Rational Rose, Poseidon,
Argo UML, Dia, OpenTool and Visio and no immediate solution was found.
Two ways are now considered: either make profit of Rational Rose (even
if this is an expensive tool) and use all the features provided by this
tool: analysis, code generation, etc or just use a tool to draw
diagrams, that is what I do for the moment for the specification and Dia
to this purpose. I saw Argo UML does not support UML 2, that is not a
surprise since UML 2 is really recent. As soon as we need to address the
tool question, I will contact you to see if something can be done around
