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

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

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
