On behalf of the IronPython team, I'm happy to announce the first release
candidate of IronPython 2.7.5
<https://ironpython.codeplex.com/releases/view/115611>. This release
includes everything from IronPython 2.7.4
<https://ironpython.codeplex.com/releases/view/90087> 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. Assemblies for embedding are provided for .NET 3.5, .NET 4,
.NET 4.5, and Silverlight 5.

IronPython 2.7.5 is primarily a collection of bug fixes
<http://bit.ly/ipy275rc1fixed> which smooths off many of the remaining
rough edges. Thecomplete list of changes
<https://github.com/IronLanguages/main/compare/ipy-2.7.4...ipy-2.7.5-rc1> is
also available.

*Note:* *The assembly version of IronPython has changed to 2.7.5.0.* All
previous 2.7 versions had the same version (2.7.0.40) which caused issues
when different versions were installed. Publisher policy files are used to
so that applications don't have to be recompiled, but recompiling is
strongly recommended.

A huge thanks goes out to Pawel Jasinski <https://github.com/paweljasinski>,
who contributed most of the changes in this release. Thanks is also
due to Simon
Opelt <https://github.com/sopelt>, Alex Earl

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 2.7.5 RC 1 is also available for embedding via NuGet
<http://nuget.org/>. The main package is IronPython, and the standard
library is in IronPython.StdLib.
