Python for .NET 1.0 beta 4 has been released - you can download
Python for .NET is a near-seamless integration of Python with the
.NET common language runtime. For more details, see the README:
Selected changes from the beta 4 release:
- Updated the bundled C Python runtime and libraries to Python 2.4.
- Managed classes reflected to Python now have an __doc__ attribute that
contains a listing of the class constructor signatures.
- Fixed a problem that made it impossible to override "special" methods
like __getitem__ in subclasses of managed classes. Now the tests all
pass, and there is much rejoicing.
- Fixed a problem that prevented passing null (None) for array
- Added support to directly iterate over objects that support
(as well as IEnumerable). Thanks to Greg Chapman for prodding me ;)
- Added a section to the README dealing with rebuilding Python for .NET
against other CPython versions.
- Fixed some problems with how COM-based objects are exposed and how
members of inherited interfaces are exposed. Thanks to Bruce Dodson
for patches on this.
