Red-Gate’s Reflector to be paid for – free alternatives?

Hi folks,

I recently discoverd that by the end of February 2011 Red-Gate stops providing Reflector for free. Although their reason sounds obvious (they cannot work for free), I think many developers still rather prefer a free IL deassembler tool. Luckily, Scott Hanselman twittered about free open source alternatives. Those open source alternative IL deassembler projects are both based on the Mono Cecil project.

I would hereby like to share them with you:

Happy coding! Cheers!

PS. Of course I am very much interested in other free alternatives. Please post your comments if any ;)

UPDATE 04/27/2011: On Twitter I heard @dotnetreflector say to @haacked that they are releasing Reflector v6 with no expiry date for existing users in May 2011!
