On behalf of the IronPython team, I'm happy to announce the final release
of IronPython 2.7.3 <http://ironpython.codeplex.com/releases/view/81726>.
This release includes everything from IronPython
, 2.7.1 <http://ironpython.codeplex.com/releases/view/62475>, and<http://ironpython.codeplex.com/releases/view/74478> as
well. Like all IronPython 2.7-series releases, *.NET 4 is required* to
install it. Installing this release will replace any existing IronPython
2.7-series installation.

The incompatibility with IronRuby has been resolved, and they can once
again be installed side-by-side.

The biggest improvements in IronPython 2.7.3 are:

   - the winsound and _bisect modules,
   - the bz2 module,
   - major improvements to the _ast module,
   - support for response files in pyc.py,
   - support for loading zip packages from resources,
   - the "SuperConsole" is now the default, which adds line history and
   tab-completion on all platforms,
   - improvements to Android support,
   - and numerous other bug

Due to major bugs, the Windows Phone 7 assemblies included in 2.7.2 are not

IronPython 2.7.3 is also available for embedding via NuGet<http://nuget.org/>.
The main package is IronPython, and the standard library is in
IronPython.StdLib. Because this is a prerelease package, you must use
-IncludePrerelease on the command line or select "Include Prerelease" from
the package drop-down menu (NuGet 1.7 only).

A huge thanks to everyone who helped make this release possible; this
wouldn't have been nearly as big a release without your help!

- Jeff
