Stunning, an absolutely essential tool for anyone involved in traditional BI development. Well done guys.

This is a must-have add-on: I spent too many developer hours struggling with debugging and performance management - if only I had known about this sooner...!

Great tool for extending the functionality of BIDS!

Fantastic add-on for BIDS, with stuff MSFT should have put in-the-box (had they been clairvoyant). The expression highlighter in SSIS is faster than last version - thank you!
