[Seo Sanghyeon:IPCE] IronPython Community Edition r5 Now Available!

by M. David Peterson

So when Seo released IPCE r4 I was fairly deep under water working on various projects that I didn't realize it until a week later when I came up for air. My apologies for missing an entire release cycle!

That said, according to Seo,

There's not much updates, but I figured that releasing early & often would be better...

Not much? I beg to differ! ;)

[IronPython] [ANN] IronPython Community Edition r5

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

You can download it from SourceForge. http://sourceforge.net/projects/fepy

FePy project aims to provide enhancements and add-ons for IronPython. Visit the project homepage for more informations. http://fepy.sourceforge.net/

Binary is built with Mono It is strongly recommended to use Mono versions above 1.2.2, as it fixes GC.CollectionCount issue properly. You may meet unexplained NotImplementedError in the long-running process otherwise. (Thanks Paolo Molaro.)

There's not much updates, but I figured that releasing early & often would be better...

Off topic perhaps, but there's a big "Adds by Yahoo" box plastered all the way across the top of your post obscuring half of the first paragraph and title, and no way of getting rid of it (Firefox 2.0 for Mac).

Sorry. No idea where else to report this to.

Hey Simon,

I haven't updated to Fx 2.0 on my Mac (thanks for the reminder! :D) -- on 1.5(.0.8) it seems to be okay, though once I have 2.0 installed I will see if I can repro and send the screenshot to the internal folks @ O'Reilly.

Thanks for letting me know, Simon!
