This is the sixth release of IronPython Community Edition (IPCE).

Download from SourceForge:

FePy project aims to provide enhancements and add-ons for IronPython.

This release is built with Mono As this release has dropped a
patch to support Mono without Socket.{Send,Receive}BufferSize
implementation, it won't work with Mono versions below 1.2.3.

It has been a long time (more than 5 months) since the last release.
In the mean time, DLR-based IronPython 2.0 Alpha 1 was revealed, and
it was subsequently ported to Mono. As this codebase is still new,
IPCE will be based on IronPython 1.1 for the time being.

Also note that IronPython 2.0 Alpha 1 has significant performance
regression on Mono (but not on MS.NET) compared to IronPython 1.1.

Changes in this release follow.


Updated to IronPython 1.1.


Huge improvements to AST support.
Support inspect.getargspec().
Pickle integration with .NET Serialization.
platform module that can handle IronPython. (Anthony Baxter)
Implement os.access(). (Rachel Hestilow)


pybench benchmark (thanks to platform module).
pyflakes code checker (thanks to AST support).
wsgiref synced to 2.5.1.
