Harry Pierson has been goaded into mapping out the road ahead for IronPython, at least partly due to utterly unfair comments from me over Twitter.
- Pushing out a new 1.1.2 release in the coming weeks, the last planned released of the 1.X (pre-Dynamic Language Runtime) branch of IronPython
- Getting IronPython 2 (currently still in beta) completed by the end of the year. IronPython 2 targets compatibility with CPython 2.5.
- Python 2.6 support (both language and library compatibility) will come sometime in the IronPython 2.1 lifecycle. Along with this will be Visual Studio integration.
- An IronPython 3 that will target Python 3.
