dotnet_logo As someone who has been using .NET Reflector for a very long time, and actually put their name and email address in the registration form, I received this interesting news the other day in an email from Lutz concerning the future of .NET Reflector:

After more than eight years of working on .NET Reflector, I have decided it is time to move on and explore some new opportunities.

I have reached an agreement to have Red Gate Software continue the development of .NET Reflector. Red Gate has a lot of experience creating development tools for both .NET and SQL Server. They have the resources necessary to work on new features, and Reflector fits nicely with other .NET tools the company offers.

Red Gate will continue to provide the free community version and is looking for your feedback and ideas for future versions.

For news and updates on Reflector, sign up for the .NET Developer’s Newsletter from Red Gate. To find out more about the agreement, see the interview on Simple Talk.

Lutz did the world an unbelievable service by creating .NET Reflector so many years ago, and it remains one of the top .NET developer tools around. Thanks Lutz for all your hard work and dedication to the .NET developer community – Red Gate has some big shoes to fill!
