JustDecompile - Free (well, reg-ware), for everyone, forever, stand-alone .Net Decompiler from Telerik

KodefuGuru - Losing Free Reflector? Try JustDecompile!

"... I wrote about the decompile feature in JustCode, which is an innovative method of decompiling your code directly within Visual Studio. However, a standalone product is desired. We don’t always want to navigate assemblies from within Visual Studio, and an interface specifically designed to navigate and decompile assemblies is valuable when taking a journey through the .NET framework, a new product, or mystery libraries.

Telerik recently announced a new product: JustDecompile. It is guaranteed to be free for everyone, free forever: there are no time bombs ..."

Telerik - JustDecompile

"Powerful, Free Decompiling. Forever.

JustDecompile is a new, free developer productivity tool designed to enable easy .NET assembly browsing and decompiling. Currently available as a BETA, JustDecompile builds on years of experience in code analysis and development productivity originally created for JustCode, Telerik's Visual Studio productivity add-in. JustDecompile lets you effortlessly explore and analyze compiled .NET assemblies, decompiling code with the simple click of a button. Download the BETA and provide feedback in the Forums to help shape the official version, targeted for the Q2 2011 release this summer.


Going to be an interesting summer with the releasing of ILSpy and JustDecompile, among other like solutions I'm sure...

Here's a snap of the app;


At first glance, I'd almost have to wonder if this were a Prism app?

Let's look at its install folder...


Yep, looks like Prism. Cool in seeing that in a commercial, released to the world, app.

Also interesting that Mono.Cecil is being used. I've been seeing a good bit about that recently and am going to have to give that a much closer look.

Cecil has been getting a lot of usage as of late. Looking over the library's features I see that it is possible to make changes and save libraries back to the disk. One of the most requested features in JustDecompile is the ability to do this, so it may be possible (with the intermediate step of compiling C# to IL). Interesting!
