IronRuby support for .Net 5.0

What is the roadmap for .Net 5.0 support in IronRuby?

Piotr Nestorow

Is it already out? Are there any previews of it? Showcases? Anything?

There is no formal roadmap. Basically once .NET 5 is released in any
form we’ll assess what (if anything) needs to be done. We won’t get
our hands on it before it’s released, so this will be unlike previous
releases where IronRuby released a compatible version with a .NET
pre-release, like we did with .NET 4 releases … unless Tomas
front-loads this work =P.

This is quite like how Mono doesn’t know what they need to do to be
.NET 5 compatible…

To speculate, presumably nothing will need to be done, but there
might be some potential for iterating on the .NET integration
features. Or if the hosting APIs make it into the framework
(Microsoft.Scripting.dll), we can take a dependency on those. But we
won’t know for sure until it’s releases.
