IronRuby & IronPython CTPs for VS2010 beta 2

Labels: ,

I have a lot of friends who really like to work in Python and Ruby, so I thought I would pass this announcement on. If you are into Python and Ruby, you might want to check out www.codemash.org, a great event I help with coming up in January.

Today we announced the release of the IronRuby and IronPython CTPs for .NET 4.0 Beta 2. This is the third preview of IronRuby and IronPython running under the Dynamic Language Runtime that is built directly into .NET 4.0. As before, this release allows you to use IronRuby objects and types as .NET 4.0 dynamic objects from within C# and Visual Basic code. These binaries are roughly equivalent to the functionality found in IronRuby 0.9 and IronPython 2.6. Take a look at Harry Pierson’s blog post about this release as well, especially if you’re more into snakes than gemstones.


Try it out

To try out this release:

· Install NET 4.0 Beta 2 or Visual Studio 2010 Beta 2

· Download either IronRuby or IronPython

· Follow any of the many dynamic walkthroughs online. This would be a good start.


Build from source

To build IronPython or IronRuby for .NET 4.0 Beta 2 from source, get the sources from:

· IronPython: CodePlex

· IronRuby: GitHub (direct download)

Note: use the "v4" build configurations.
