I am an "old" computer engineer & programmer, not old enough to have a punch card story but old enough to
- have owned a Zx-81
- programmed in Motorola 6809 assembler
- remember when 64K was lots of RAM

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.
