Hi,

I suppose you're right when you say that we haven't been making a lot of
noise about Aardvark lately. Lack of announcements, however, does not mean a
lack of interest on our part. We have been working feverishly to squash the
remaining issues and test functionality of new features for the new release,
due in about 4 weeks.

Red Gate is every bit as committed to supporting its' customer base as
we are to expanding our product range.

Regards,

    Hello "Me",

    I know the industry mantra is 4-6 weeks. I think Red Gate should break
    with tradition and promise new releases in 3-7 weeks, that way people
    wouldn't be so darn cynical on the eve of a new release. :-)

    Seriously, though, feel free to come over to my house and kick my dog if
    there isn't an Aardvark 2 coming out. I'll even send you the round-trip
    airfare.

    It would appear that this is true now, sadly. Version 2.0 was the last version, then it was discontinued about a year later. All good things must come to an end!

    --For existing customers, we continue to offer support for this product and will do so for the next few years. Thanks to everyone who has supported us and supported Aardvark for the last few years!!
