IronPython Community Edition R3 Released.

Yesterday Seo Sanghyeon announced that the third release of IPCE was available. This release uses the current IronPython stable version 1.0.1 and the modules of the CPython 2.4.4 standard library that are known to work under IronPython. Also Sanghyeon has been busy creating additional CPython-compatible wrappers which are included with this release:
  • zlib, using System.IO.Compression.
  • hashlib, using System.Security.Cryptography
  • sqlite3, using generic DB-API module
I think another important change is the move to a MIT license. There had been some negative discussion about IPCE's previous WTF license, so hopefully this change means more people will consider using IPCE. So if you want a version of IronPython that has "batteries included", give IPCE a go.

You can download it from here or here.
