.NET Reflector version 6 will be kept free for existing users

As I mentioned in one of my previous posts (http://blogs.msdn.com/b/amb/archive/2011/02/02/net-reflector-is-not-free-anymore.aspx), Red Gate has decided to charge $35 for .NET Reflector. However, based on the community feedback and the success of the version 7, RedGate has now decided to release a version of the Reflector 6 for the existing users. Here is a part of the statement from RedGate:

Based on a large amount of community feedback and the success of version 7, we’re releasing a version of .NET Reflector 6 with no expiry date for existing users. This will be a stripped down version without any of the bug fixes or new features in version 7 and it will not be supported going forward. 

This version of Reflector will only be available to current users via the check for updates mechanism in existing copies of Reflector. It will be available from early May and no separate download will be available.

    Red Gate probably back peddled due to Telerik's recently released JustDecompile, which is free
