Hello IronPython Community,

We have just released IronPython 1.1 Release Candidate 1. IronPython v1.1 is a minor update to IronPython including both new functionality as well as a number of targeted bug fixes.  The new functionality in v1.1 includes several new modules (array, SHA, MD5, and select), support for XML Doc comments within the help system and __doc__ tags, as well as support for loading cached pre-compiled modules.  If no regressions are discovered with this release then we will re-release the same binary as v1.1 final.
 You can download the release from: 1.1 Release Candidate

We'd like to thank everyone in the community for your bug reports and suggestions that helped make this a better release: Anthony Baxter, Arman0, Christian Muirhead, Doubleyewdee, Eloff, Jörgen Stenarson, Py_Sunil, Seo Sanghyeon, Tarlano, and Whit537.
