Online release notes:

IronRuby 1.1* is the first release after IronRuby 1.0, the first stable
version of the Ruby 1.8.6 http://ruby-lang.org/ compiler for the .NET
framework. IronRuby 1.1 is NOT fully backwards compatible with
IronRuby
1.0; most notably that IronRuby 1.1 no longer supports .NET 2.0 SP1.
.NET
3.5 is the minimum requirement for IronRuby 1.1, though using .NET 4.0
is
strongly advised. Also, though this release is primarily bug-fixes for
1.0,
consider any new features “Alpha” quality.

This release adds support for .NET extension
methodshttp://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb383977.aspx in
IronRuby. This works by calling the using_clr_extensions method, which
activates all extension methods defined on classes defined in a given
namespace, regardless of the assembly they are defined in; assemblies
loaded
in the future that define extension methods in the activated namespace
will
automatically appear on the correct types. Here’s a simple example of
using
LINQ http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/netframework/aa904594.aspx
extension
methods:

load_assembly “System.Core”
using_clr_extensions System::Linq

products.
where(lambda { |p| p.units_in_stock == 0 }).
each { |x| puts x.product_name }

For more information see the LINQ 101 sampes ported to
IronRubyhttp://github.com/ironruby/ironruby/blob/master/Languages/Ruby/Samples/Linq/101samples.rb

IronRuby 1.1 is now licensed under the Apache License (Version
2)http://ironruby.codeplex.com/license,
rather than the Microsoft Public License. This decision is based upon
continual feedback and questions from the community, as well as for
consistency between IronPython http://ironpython.codeplex.com/ and
the Dynamic
Language Runtime http://dlr.codeplex.com/, which are now also licensed
under the Apache License.

Other fixes in IronRuby 1.1:

For more detailed list of changes and bugfixes please see the
CHANGELOG.txt
in the release.

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.
