[ANN] IronRuby 1.0 Released!

Ruby and .NET developers,

The IronRuby team is pleased to announce IronRuby 1.0!

Download IronRuby 1.0 now:

Direct download links (Windows installers and ZIP files for both .NET
2.0 SP1 and .NET 4.0):

IronRuby 1.0 is the first stable version of IronRuby, targeting Ruby
1.8.6 compatibility. For a high-level compatibility report solely based
on RubySpec, see http://ironruby.info. For a detailed change-log since
0.3, see the change-log page:

IronRuby now comes in two flavors - one that runs on top of .NET 4.0,
and one that runs on any earlier framework starting with .NET 2.0 SP1.
The .NET 4.0 flavor features faster startup time, compatibility with
C#'s dynamic keyword, and access to the new features in .NET 4.0. So,
the .NET 4.0 flavor is the preferred download now, as the Microsoft .NET
Framework 4.0 is publically available as of today. For Mono
compatibility, use the zip file release for 2.0 SP1.

Download .NET 4.0:

Since IronRuby’s first public release there have been 455 reported bugs
fixed, 98 community members reporting bugs, 100+ code contributions by
15 community members, and 11 core-team members. Thank you to everyone
who made IronRuby 1.0 possible:

I think I speak for everyone when I extend a very special thanks to John
Lam, for without his pursuit of an integration between Ruby and the CLR,
IronRuby would surely never gotten a chance to exist.

As always, if you find any bugs or have a feature request, please open
an issue on CodePlex: http://ironruby.codeplex.com/WorkItem/Create.aspx.

We hope you enjoy writing Ruby code for the .NET framework, and thank
you for your continued support!

The IronRuby Core Team
Shri B., Jim D., Tomas M., and Jimmy S.

AWESOME work guys!!!

My prediction: until IronRuby 4.0, we’re bigger than C#! :slight_smile:

Way to go!
