On behalf of the IronPython team, I'm happy to announce the second preview
release of IronPython 2.7.3. This release includes everything from
IronPython 2.7 <http://ironpython.codeplex.com/releases/view/54498>,
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

*IMPORTANT*: There is a known issue if IronRuby 1.1.3 is installed (
"load language" problem <http://ironpython.codeplex.com/workitem/32452>). *You
must uninstall IronRuby* before installing IronPython 2.7.3. This will be
resolved before the final 2.7.3 release.

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

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!
