The Developer Division source tree was branched over a month ago in
preparation for the beta release. Ruby and DLR development continued on
the â€œheadâ€ branch, while stabilization and fixes were applied to the
â€œbeta 1â€ branch. Because of this, thereâ€™s some chance that changes have
been made to either Ruby or the (non-core) DLR which prevent Ruby head
from working with the beta 1 CLR. In other words, this would require a
bit of work â€“ first to identify whether or not any changes are needed to
work with the older version, and then to actually make a branch on
github and do that work.
In other words, this is basically a resourcing problem â€“ and IronRuby
doesnâ€™t really have any Microsoft resources to spare for something that
is essentially â€œdead-endâ€ work. But anything that could possibly be
needed to do this work is publicly available and open sourced.
So in short, our plan is to let you do the work! You have the source
â€“ whatâ€™s stopping you?!

Is there a plan to allow users to build from source and still run within

The IronRuby team is pleased to announce the release of the IronRuby CTP
for .NET 4.0 Beta 1:
This release corresponds with the shipping of Visual Studio 2010 Beta 1,
which includes .NET 4.0 Beta 1:
This is a preview of IronRuby running under the Dynamic Language
Runtime, whichis is built directly into .NET 4.0! This release allows
you to use IronRuby objects and types as .NET 4.0 dynamic objects from
within C# and Visual Basic code. These binaries are roughly equivalent
to the functionality found in IronRuby 0.3. Please also note that the
IronRuby CTP for .NET 4.0 Beta 1 will run only under .NET 4.0 Beta 1.
This release also includes the binaries for the IronPython 2.6 CTP for
.NET 4.0 Beta 1:
