Hello IronPython Community,

We have just released IronPython 1.0 RC2.  This build includes fixes for all known blocking issues against RC1, and we’re anticipating that this build will be the same as 1.0 final unless we hear otherwise.  We’re looking for any feedback, but in particular we’d like to know of any blocking issues discovered against this build or fundamental language incompatibilities.  Please try out the latest build over the next 2 weeks and let us know if you encounter any issues as soon as possible.

We'd like to thank everyone in the community for your bug reports and suggestions that helped make this a better release: Kevin Bjorke, Kevin Chu, Mark Rees, Stanislas Pinte, and Timothy Fitz.

Thanks and keep in touch,

The IronPython Team
