Well, it looks like one of the best .NET utilities out there has changed hands. Lutz Roeder, the original creator and developer of Reflector has agreed with Red Gate software (they of SQL Compare and SQL Toolkit fame) to let them continue development of it from now one. An interview with both Lutz and James Shore of Red Gate outlining the deal and what Red Gate hopes to do with Reflector can be found here on simple talk.

Red gate are quite clear that they “will continue to offer the tool for free to the community.” but don’t categorically state that they may not offer a corporate, paid-for version later down the line. As long as there’s a free version I’m not too fussed. Reflector’s new home is http://reflector.red-gate.com/
