[IronPython] Roadmap for IronPython 2.0

We don't really have a document like this but the general goal is to ship IronPython 2.0 by the end of the year.  The goals for IronPython generally include CPython 2.5 compatibility and fully running on top of the DLR.  And of course we've already seen numerous improvements from IronPython 1.1 -> 2.0 and I expect to see a bunch more random improvements as we continue (e.g. bug fixes, performance, etc...).

For the DLR its self the plan is to ship a v1.0 around the same time as IronPython 2.0.  The goal for DLR v1.0 is to get great hosting support so that apps can consume multiple languages and languages can plug into the DLR and run inside of applications in a reasonable manner.

The really interesting question at this point for DLR v1.0 is how finalized the language implementer API will be.   We still have some work to know if that'll be finalized in time or if we'll be expecting some breaking changes in that area post DLR 1.0.

Subject: [IronPython] Roadmap for IronPython 2.0

Dear all,

I am new to IronPython.  IP 1.1 looks really great, and I have really enjoyed learning to use it over the last few weeks.  I'm impressed with both its power and ease of use.  One thing that I would love to learn more about, however, is the planned features and goals for 2.0, particularly with regard to the DLR, but I haven't been able to find a feature roadmap or anything like that yet.  I have looked at the release notes and the documentation download for IP 2.0 itself, but those documents were either very specific to each release or focused on documenting the code of the interpreter rather than the features/goals of 2.0.  Would someone be able to point me towards that document?

Thank you,

Rocco Pigneri
