2.6 Release Roadmap

New features

  • CPython 2.6 compatibility
  • Improved startup time
  • New built-in modules that were previously missing:
    • ctypes
    • heapq
  • New IronPython features:
    • meta-class method __clrtype__ for better .NET interop support
    • Cached subtypes
    • Adaptive interpreter (related to improved startup time)
    • New built-in profiler
    • Optional sys._getframe support
    • Generic method type inference

Tenative release plan

  • IronPython 2.6 Alpha 1 - Mar 26, 2009
    • At least 50% of 2.6 tests pass that passed under 2.5. Many of the big new features implemented.
  • IronPython 2.6 Beta 1 - End of May
    • Mostly feature complete - all 2.6 features, abstract interpreter, cached new types, clrtype, ctypes
  • IronPython 2.6 Beta 2 - ~2 months later
    • Primarily bug fixes on top of Beta 1. Also maybe some top small features as requested by users.
  • IronPython 2.6 RC 1 - ~1.5 months later
    • Build is truly a candidate for release. If no showstoppers are reported this build will be shipped as RTM
  • IronPython 2.6 Final ~1 month later.
    • Final build - same as RC1 if showstoppers are not found. Otherwise same as RC2 or if only one or two minor issues are found then RC1 + fixes.
