On behalf of the IronPython team, I'm happy to announce the first alpha
release of IronPython
2.7.4<https://ironpython.codeplex.com/releases/view/106471>.
This release includes everything from IronPython
2.7.3<https://ironpython.codeplex.com/releases/view/81726> and
earlier. 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.

Improvements in IronPython 2.7.4 are mainly a collection of bug
fixes<https://ironpython.codeplex.com/workitem/list/advanced?keyword=&status=Fixed&type=All&priority=All&release=2.7.4&assignedTo=All&component=All&sortField=Votes&sortDirection=Descending&page=0>,
many of which are directed at getting IPython <http://ipython.org/> working,
although it's not there yet.

Android and Silverlight 4 assemblies have been dropped from this version.
The Android assemblies need some more work to be usable with
Xamarin.Android, ans Silverlight 4 is just plain dead.

For Visual Studio integration, check out Python Tools for Visual
Studio<http://pytools.codeplex.com/> which
has support for IronPython as well as CPython, and many other fantastic
features.

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.

A huge thanks goes out to Pawel Jasinski, Michael van der Kolff, and
Aleksander Heintz, who contributed most of the packages for this release.

- Jeff
