I am the author of IronTextBox
which is currently only for IP1

I have started an IP2 version looking at many different ways to due it
but I have concluded to wait until IP2 is at least beta.  Even then, I
do wish IP2 was easier to integrate with textbox and richedit
controls.  But I really haven't invested much time into IronTextBox 2
so I still might be able to pull something off in the next few months.
To be honest I really haven't been using IP2 until recently.  Ideally,
I would like as close as the Visual Studio IronPython Console as
possible (color coding autocomplete etc.) but I was unable to find a
hook at the time I was looking.  But then the IronTextBox user would
have to have Visual Studio installed and that really isn't ideal.
Later, JoeSox
