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* All
previous 2.7 versions had the same version ( 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

library is in IronPython.StdLib.
