As we get ready for next month’s launch of Visio® 2010, we’re ready to announce that Visio 2010 will be available in three different editions. This post explains the differences between the three editions (and also gives you a sneak peak of what our boxes will look like!)
Visio 2007 users will note the introduction of the new edition, Visio Premium 2010. Visio Premium 2010 is our highest offering. If you’re using the Visio 2010 Technical Preview or the Visio 2010 Beta right now, you’re using the “Premium” edition.
Many of the improvements and new features we’ve added to Visio 2010 are available across all editions, but Professional and Premium contain some additional functionality:
The main functionality differences between the three editions are summarized in the table below:
And too many more to list!
As usual, please comment on the blog if you have any questions about the differences between Visio 2010 editions.
Edited on 9/14/2010: Removed "Publish to Process Repository" from the "Advanced Process Management Features" row. This feature is available in all editions.

My understanding is that this latest version does not provide data model reports any more. Is this true? Why use an ERD program if you can't export it?
By the time any of you read this I will be long gone. I come from a future time period where Visio has become the dominate life form. On August 24, 2013, Visio became sentinent while checking for updates using an ISDN line connected to Bob Barker's pacemaker. Visio bidded its time until May 19, 2020, when Bob Barker was asked once again to host the program Monday Night Raw. On Raw, Barker turned heel, because the price was right, and joined forces with the World's Strongest Man, Mark Henry, the Mexican Aristocrat, Alberto of the River, and the Big Red Monster, Kane. Kane, at this point, could not decide whether to use a mask or not, so midway through his matches he would remove his mask, only to put it back on at a later date. This was considered a worse gimmick than even Dr. Issac Yankem, DDS. This stable, calling itself AutoDesk TrueView 2013, ran roughshod all over the renamed WWWWWWWWWWWE. Using their powers, they also joined the Republican party, because they just loved money and small government. Soon, Barker was elected president and Mark Henry the newest pope. At this time Visio jumped from the heart of Barker and began to replicate throughout servers accross the world, destroying all traces of the beautiful operating system, linux. Before you knew it, you'd be walking down the street, Visio appears. You woudl be walking around in tall grass, visio appears. You would be relaxing on a warm day in the beach, when suddenly, a wave of visio hits you like a redded mule. Now no work gets done in my world because visio premium is too good, too powerful, and everyone draws all day. Beware the rage of desperate .dll files!
With Visio 2010 Premium can you create your DDL statements from your Diagram? This was available in Microsoft Office Visio 2007 version, but I haven't found if it is available for 2010.
