Planning to change IronRuby.sln to a VS 2008 project

If anyone strongly objects, please let me know ASAP.

Thanks,
-John

No, I would actually prefer it.

2k8 FTW.

Ditto.

We’re still targeting 2.0 today. But we will likely start using C# 3
features soon (one project already does, but it’s not essential).

Thanks,

Will it still target .NET 2.0, or will it target .NET 3.5?

I have a working copy from a few weeks ago, I’ve been using it since I
let
VS upgrade it and it seems to work.

Choice of VS version doesn’t affect me (since I don’t use VS) but
choice of C# language version does. If IronRuby’s use of C# 3 features
causes me trouble, I will scream loudly so that you will know. :slight_smile:

Depending on .NET 3 features will greatly reduce the number of people
capable of running IronRuby…

Can you be more specific? Are you worried about support of the
additional features on Mono? Or are there any issues with installing
.NET Framework 3.5?

Using C# 3 features does not mean using .NET 3 features.

I think the primary concern would be with C# 3.0 features that the
mono compiler does not support, i.e. Extension Methods, Lambdas,
Linq… Though I know they’ve been working towards support.
Secondary concerns would be .NET 3.0+ libraries that Mono hasn’t
implemented yet. Right now (well as of Rev 77) I can compile IronRuby
on mono in Linux, don’t want to loose that.

Linq would be the biggest thing. The reason being, when devs begin to
get
very serious with new things like this, mono users are screwed…

.NET 2 has a wide installed user base. .NET 3 penetration is much lower.

I know that at Resolver Systems < http://www.resolversystems.com >,
where we are building a spreadsheet development environment with
IronPython, most of our customers have .NET 2 and very few have .NET
3.

As Seo says though, using some C# 3 language features is not the same as
depending on .NET 3.
