Hello IronPython Community,
We have just released IronPython 2.0 Alpha 6. As per usual, this release includes all of the changes we have made in the past month. The most noteworthy differences include:
- the IronPython project is now distributed under the Microsoft Public License (Ms-PL)
- improved support of COM events under the –X:PreferComDispatch flag
- the abstract syntax tree for IronPython is being hardened so to speak
- we have included an updated DLR sample in the source zip file – ToyScript
It’s also worth mentioning that like last month, we’ve been spending a great deal of time looking into active CodePlex bugs.
The IronPython TeamIMPORTANT NOTES
Internally we have migrated our Visual Studio project and solution files over to a Visual Studio 2008 beta release. While we’ve modified these files in the source distribution of IronPython to be compatible with Visual Studio 2005 and the msbuild tool, it’s possible we may have missed something. If you experience any problems building IronPython from VS tools please let us know.
The ToyScript sample is not intended to be distributed with IronPython on a permanent basis and will likely be released in some other fashion in the not too distant future.
