Insight on the future of IronRuby?


#1

Hi guys (and girls, if any),

I’d really, really like to have any hint of where IronRuby and the DLR
are
going, roughly.

We’re considering using IR as a scripting engine for a fairly important
desktop app, so I thought I would ask, now that the dust has settled.

Any idea ?

thanks!

Is there any “official” work from Microsoft about these issues?

The official Microsoft position remains the same:

“At this time, we have no announcements to make beyond what we announced
in July 2010 — that we were putting these [IronRuby and IronPython]
under the Apache License v2.0. Clearly, there is customer and community
interest in these languages. With many organizations running mixed IT
environments, we continue to value community feedback on how we can
support their interoperability needs, and we remain committed to
supporting multiple tools and languages that provide developers with the
most choice and flexibility.”
