I wonder if anyone is aware that Red-Gate has stopped support and
development/enhancement of their Aardvark product.

I have had the product for quite some time and there have been NO updates,
enhancements, plans, announcements, etc. regarding Aardvarks future. On the
contrary though, there has been a copious amount of work, development and
announcements on their ANTS product.

Make sure you know what you are getting into if you are looking at Aardvark.

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,

Thanks for the response Brian. I sincerely hope you are correct. I await
the oft-described, "due out shortly" version you discussed in your post.
According to your post on 12-30-2002, you indicate 4 weeks...we'll see if
Red-Gate delivers; although, I am not holding my breath on this one...I have
heard this same line for some time now.

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. Smile

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!!
