[IronPython] IronPython 0.9.4 released

Hi Keith,

I think that we overstated the announcement of static compilation a little bit.  There is a new class that does support some static compilation, but it's far from complete.  We only expose the class and no msbuild or command-line way of invoking the compiler so you'll need to write a Python (or C# or VB or ...) script to drive a build.  It will build a collection of Python modules into a single executable.  These executables need access to IronPython.dll and IronMath.dll either in the path, a config file or the GAC.  The collections of modules can also be loaded with sys.LoadAssembly* functions and then their Python modules can be imported and used in IronPython.

There is no support yet for building a library that is easily usable from other CLS languages (like C# and VB).  This will be coming at some currently unspecified time in the future.

Thanks - Jim

Does the static compilation include support for producing .NET libraries (as opposed to a sequence of snippets), or is that still being worked on?

Hello IronPython community,

we have just released IronPython 0.9.4. The biggest change is implementation of static compilation (IronPython.Hosting.Compiler), a component that compiles multiple sources into the single executable.
