Red Gate is officially ending sales and development for ANTS Load, effective April 4, 2007. After many weeks of discussions about creating a new version of the program, the determination was that the program wasn't well-suited to our existing sales, marketing, development, and support models.
This means that new versions will not be forthcoming. The current code will not be made available, nor will the program be released for free as some of Red Gate's other discontinued products have been.
For existing customers, we will continue honouring requests for support until the end of the existing support contracts. We will continue to produce patches for 'serious' flaws that cannot be worked around for all customers during that time. For customers who have a valid support contract, please email any support queries to firstname.lastname@example.org, quoting your serial number, so we can give the problem the appropriate level of attention.
The software will continue being available for download on our websites and FTP sites so that current owners of the software can continue to use it if they need to reinstall or update their current installations.
If there are any questions or comments, please feel free to contact us through our sales and support channels.
My thanks go out to everyone who has supported us over the years by evaluating, purchasing, and using ANTS Load.
