Redgate SmartAssembly

SmartAssembly from Redgate is a .NET obfuscator for .NET developers that also provides Automated Error Reporting. When end users encounter an error with your application a complete error report is created that can be sent back to you. The report contains full stack trace and local variables values so you can diagnose in-the-field application issues. Great product and a solid replacement for the now defunct http://xenocode.com (what a way to kill something off!).
