IronPython is a .NET implementation of Python, created by Jim Hugunin who is currently working for Microsoft. Jim didn't specify a date when to expect 1.0 final, but he did mention that he'd prefer to keep it under 10 beta releases. As always, I'm happy to see the continued emphasis of CPython compatibility with this project. Microsoft takes a continual beating for "not playing nicely with others", but I haven't seen anything with the IronPython project that would lend itself to such criticism. I haven't had a chance to install 1.0 yet. Maybe I'll get to that next year.... :-)
