Http://ironruby.net get's a facelift


#1

All,

http://ironruby.net should look completely different, and that’s a good
thing. I spent today moving stuff around, deleting, consolidating, etc.
The site is more focused on getting and using IronRuby, but don’t fear,
all the info related to contributing to IronRuby is now on the Github
wiki: http://wiki.github.com/ironruby/ironruby.

There are still a bunch of pages out of date, like the library status,
and general project status, but those are next to update. A detailed
list describing the status of each library will make it much more
straight-forward to jump in and start working on one.

Let me know what you think.

Hi Jimmy,

The new site looks great, truly an improvement over the old one. The
homepage is definitely more approachable. I might suggest making it more
clear that the Contribute link goes to github, i.e., mention it in the
subtext. Also would be nice to have a link to the mailing list on the
homepage. Which, by the way: is this a mailing list or a message board?
I’m viewing it at http://ruby-forum.com/forum/34 — is there a regular
list this interface is reading and posting to? Might be worth clarifying
that on the site, too.

Also, it seems like the 0.2 Alpha download is a bit broken. On calls to
ScriptSource.Execute([some code]) I get an exception complaining about
it being unable to find Microsoft.Scripting.dll v1.0.0.5000. The bundled
Microsoft.Scripting.dll is 1.0.0.5001. Has anyone else had similar
problems?

Thanks =)

I changed the “Media” link to “Support”, and have links to the RubyForge
bug/feature trackers, as well as the mailing list there.

This is a mailing list, but http://ruby-forum.com provides a
web-interface for all Ruby/Rails related mailing lists.
