We are excited to announce the release of IronPython 0.7.2. The
improvements over the recent 0.7.1 release are:

* Indexing .Net arrays, both single- and multi-dimensional
* Correct exception thrown on division by zero (ZeroDivisionError)
* string constant parsing fixed to handle unrecognized escape sequences
* Complex slicing scenarios fixed
* issubclass(class, instance) fixed to raise correct exception
* chr(x) raises ValueError on invalid values
* callable() implemented
* object.__delattr__ implemented
* Exception.args can now be accessed from Python code (this relates to
the .Net array access)
* str(None) is now handled correctly
* Call with keyword args is fixed
* Invoking .Net properties with parameters (indexers) is now supported
* .Net classes with static constructor can now be subclassed
* max() and min() fixed to work on lists and support correct arguments
* open file overloads are now implemented
* complex() second argument is optional fixed
* Implementation of long integer division. This enables us to run
Parrotbench again.
* A new example to demonstrate the use of .Net delegates with IronPython
