What's happening to Sixth & Red River?


I navigated to http://www.sixthandredriver.com/ this morning and found the message

Sixth and Red River Software was formed to create high-quality, language-aware software development tools at a reasonable price. However, due to changing market conditions and other opportunities, we are closing down our retail business as of April 8, 2008. Support inquiries can be directed to support@sixthandredriver.com. 


I know some of their products, such as Refactor-X and JS inspections, have made it into IntelliJ by default -- will this happen with the rest of their products as well now?

Can anyone shed some light about what's going on?  What will happen to their product line?  Any insight would be greatly appreciated.
