Iron Python 1.0!

Iron Python 1.0 has been released!  Congrats to the CLR team. Jim Hugunin has all the details.  In my opinion, this is a really big deal for the platform.


Having spent the last year extensively experimenting with Ruby, I got to say I am becoming a big fan of some of the features of dynamic languages.  However, I think Eric Meijer’s “Static Typing Where Possible, Dynamic Typing When Needed” mantra might be the best long term solution – and we already have this little language that supports this.


Food for thought: If one has a dynamic language for the CLR, why have APIs designed for statically typed languages that don’t leverage the dynamic language features?


Someone already has some good ideas about that topic.
