We are proud to announce the release of Resolver One, version 1.1 -
the largest IronPython application in the world, we think, at 38,000
lines of production code backed up by 130,000 lines of unit and
functional tests.

Resolver One is a Rapid Application Development tool for analysing and
presenting business data using a familiar spreadsheet interface,
combined with a powerful IronPython-based scripting capability that
allows you to insert your own code directly into the recalculation
loop.  There's a one-minute screencast about it here:


For version 1.1 , we’ve made quite a lot of changes, hopefully making
the program more responsive and pleasant to use - as well as adding
cool new features.  Some of the highlights:

    * Significant improvements to performance and memory usage.
    * Cutting and pasting is now more "spreadsheet-like".
    * User-defined formatter functions on a per-cell basis.
    * Ability to "unpack" Python iterables into ranges of cells.
    * Auto-indent in the code editor.
    * Better coverage of standard spreadsheet functions.
    * Comments in cells.
    * For the financial edition, we've added Thomson Dataworks
Enterprise connectivity and a number of great enhancements to
Bloomberg access.

We’ve put together a three-minute screencast outlining all these


It's free for non-commercial use (and quite cheap for commercial
use :-), so if you would like to take a look, you can download it from
our website (free registration required):
