Redgate aquires Reflector

When looking to download the latest version of reflector, i was surprised to see that Redgate had acquired reflector.  Redgate makes some great time-saving products so this fits very well with their offering, but being such an essential tool you can’t help but wondering what will happen to the ‘free’ version despite Redgate’s commitment

It is a shame that the source has not been ‘open’ to date (in fact itself is obfuscated).  I think this could have been a good opportunity for RedGate to engage with the open source community offering commercial value-add support on top of a free project like MySQL and so many others.
