Check out svn.kde.org:/home/kde/branches/KDE/3.5/kdesdk .
Actually the 3.5 branch of umbrello is more current than the main trunk which,

Well, NOW is the right time for testing - so that we can get things sorted out

The biggest change is that the "type" attribute in <UML:Attribute> used to
contain the plain text of the attribute type and now it contains the xmi.id of
the corresponding XMI element of the type. Similarly for <UML:Parameter>.
