redgate‘s decision to start charging for their Reflector .NET decompiler sent ripples through the .NET development community. Personally, while I do not think that the 25-69 EUR price is outrageous, I must agree with many people – redgate promised to keep Reflector free after the acquisition.

But, whatever happens, happens for the best. New decompilers started appearing like mushrooms after the rain, and JetBrains, the famous maker of e.g. ReSharper and TeamCity, came with its own free dotPeek decompiler, which is in the EAP or Early Access Program stage now. Knowing and using JetBrains’ products, I believe that dotPeek has all chances to become the de-facto standard for a .NET decompiler eventually, so I will keep an eye on it.
