Wow! Congratulations everyone. This is an impressive release!

> 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, 2.7.1, and 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.
> IMPORTANT: There is a known issue if IronRuby 1.1.3 is installed ( "load language" problem). You must uninstall IronRuby before installing IronPython 2.7.3. This will be resolved before the final 2.7.3 release.

> IronPython 2.7.3 is also available for embedding via NuGet. 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).
