So I see various SQL Refactor features being added to SQL Prompt. Is the plan to just move all the functionality of Refactor into Prompt and give rid of SQL Refactor as a stand-alone product? I'd vote for that.

That's right. The plan is that SQL Refactor features will become Pro features of SQL Prompt.

Are you working towards making it work in tandem with the native SQL Server IntelliSense? I think the current inability to work together with the native IntelliSense is a major drawback of the product.

What do you mean by 'in tandem'? SSMS Intellisense and SQL Prompt's auto-completion are alternatives to each other. Only one should be enabled at any given time, otherwise both will pop up over each other.
