Hi Dan,

For development, I use Visual Studio 2005 Beta 2, build 8.0.50215.44.

The computer that builds the IronPython distribution and runs the tests
.Net Framework 2.0 Beta 2 2.0.50215.44 and the Beta 2 SDK (also
2.0.50215.44). For this machine I actually downloaded the .Net Beta 2
packages from Microsoft public web so that what we use to produce the
build and run the tests is exactly the same build of .Net that we
recommend everyone to use IronPython with. Also note that this computer
doesn't even have Visual Studio and only uses publicly available .Net
SDK to build the product.

The formatting bug has not been fixed yet. I definitely plan to fix it,
however I wasn't assigning it very high priority. If you like to see the
fix soon, let me know and I will try to get to it sooner than I probably
normally would. The workaround that may do until then is:

>>> hex(16)

I hope this helps and good luck with your reinstallation.
