In the next couple days I'm updating Dynamic Silverlight to include Managed
JScript (finally), but I'm not planning on revving the
IronPython/IronRuby/DLR bits. It's less than a month before SL Beta2 is
released, which is why no updated release between Beta1 and Beta2 seemed to
make sense. Agree?

To be honest though, this might be really easy to do. If you download
Dynamic Silverlight from http://codeplex.com/sdlsdk, replace the IronPython
and DLR source with the IronPython Beta2 source, the only build breaks will
probably be in Microsoft.Scripting.Silverlight (mostly DLR API changes). If
anyone wants to give it a shot, let me know. If you get it working (runs all
the current Beta1 IronPython/IronRuby samples), feel free to send it my way.
If we have time we can run our tests over it, and if all is green I'll put
it up on codeplex (with additional credits, of course).
