There's a too be updated list on:
	http://owl1_1.cs.manchester.ac.uk/

"Protege 4.0 alpha" and TopBraid Composer. There's a version of swoop  
that browses them.

(It's best to post to, or at least cc, public-owl-dev for OWL 1.1  
discussions.)

The problem is that the DIG "1.0" concept language doesn't support  
OWL 1.1. DIG 2.0 uses the xml syntax for OWL 1.1, so it's fine.  
Protege, Swoop, and TopBraid all use a "direct" connection to the  
reasoner (including, in protege's case, FaCT++). If you are writing  
your own tool, you might check out how the OWL API wraps the various  
reasoners. Performance is generally better than DIG (much better for  
Java based reasoners like Pellet and KAON2).

Hope this helps.
