Hello Sybrand,

  I personally was not able to find free SQL formatter before.

  Looks like many other our colleagues was not able either - lot's of them downloaded the program

  If you'd check out previous messages, or just download the program, you'd find out that:

  1. it is 100% free (and will stay free)
  2. email requested only to be able to send updates/notification about the new versions.
