Hello IronPython Community,

We have just released IronPython 1.1 Beta 1.  This release primarily focuses on adding the remaining new functionality for the 1.1 release (array module, importing pre-compiled modules) along with many new bug fixes.  Also included but previously available with 1.1 Alpha 1 are the new XML Doc comment integration with the help system, the SHA, MD5, and select modules.  The remaining of the 1.1 cycle will focus on bug fixes.
You can download the release from: http://www.codeplex.com/IronPython/Release/ProjectReleases.aspx?ReleaseId=1944

We'd like to thank everyone in the community for your bug reports and suggestions that helped make this a better release: J. Merrill, Coleyc, JoeSox, Michael Foord, Seo Sanghyeon, and Sylvain Hellegouarch.
