[IronPython] IronPython 2.6 and .NET 4.0 (and the GAC)

I think it's a safe bet that when the final version of .NET 4.0 is released we'll either:  
* re-release the latest final version of IronPython against it.  If .NET 4.0 had already shipped today, this would end up being "IronPython 2.0.1 for .NET 4.0"
* release the next version of IronPython (e.g., IP 2.7/3.x Alpha/Beta/etc) against it
In any event, we definitely plan on shipping something built against .NET 4.0 that doesn't contain "Community Technology Preview" in the title.

Until the final version of .NET 4.0 ships, expect more preview releases of IronPython for .NET 4.0.

As for your question about adding IronPython assemblies to the GAC,  I'm not aware of any extra requirements offhand.  Maybe Dino knows...

Hi all,
Are there plans to release versions of 2.6 for both .NET 2.0 & .NET
4.0, or are the 4.0 previews just for demonstration?

Also, (as nobody noticed my earlier mail :)), are there plans to
support adding 2.6 to the GAC? When I asked for 2.0, it was mentioned
that there are more stringent requirements for the GAC; I'm just
wondering if those are being targetted.
