In the early months of the year 2000, certain matters that were internal to Hughes Technologies forced it to suspend all activities associated with its primary product, Mini SQL. As of the 1st of January 2001, those matters have been resolved and the company is now preparing itself to start offering the products and services for which it was known.

"Our absence from the market has been disappointing for both our user base and ourselves." stated David Hughes, Managing Director. "Although we left the product available from the web site and didn't charge anybody who decided to use it, the lack of continued development and technical support has certainly hurt our users. In the next few weeks our operation will be back to full speed and we hope that users of our products will be happy with the software and support once again."

From the first of January, the development team has been working feverishly to prepare the first public release of the third generation mSQL product. A complete source code audit has been undertaken and the software has been modified extensively to improve it's underlying quality and stability. "Virtually every line of code has been inspected during the audit. The result is that the source has been modularised and rationalised to improve stability, reliability, and our ability to further enhance the software" says Hughes. Further details of the many enhancements made to the software will be made available on the web site at www.Hughes.com.au.

With the development team now back into full operation, the support and administration side of the company will start public work as of the 1st of February 2001.The release schedule for the mSQL 3.0 starts with an initial public release on the 15th of February 2001.
