Just in time for the holidays we have released IronPython 2.0 Alpha 7! There’s been numerous changes to IronPython in the past month and a half. Most notably a lot of work has been done to get usage of the ‘yield’ statement compatible with CPython 2.5. There might be a few more changes that need to be made, but by and far IP now adheres to PEP 342. Another notable change brings the code closer to the new hosting API spec we published on this mailing list. The next couple of releases should finish that work.

ToyScript, a small scripting language built on top of the DLR, is merely a DLR sample and not some new scripting language Microsoft has created. Also, ToyScript is not intended to be distributed with IronPython on a permanent basis.
