IronPython 2 Integration in the SharpDevelop IDE

Matt Ward has integrated IronPython 2 Beta 4 into SharpDevelop 3. SharpDevelop is an open source IDE for .NET on Windows.

As IronPython 2 has reduced Code DOM support, the Windows Forms designer and code conversion (C# / VB.NET to Python) is currently disabled. Using the forms designer to create forms in C# and then using them from IronPython is easy though.

As IronPython 2 now supports static compilation, SharpDevelop can compile IronPython projects into executables or assemblies. SharpDevelop also has an IronPython console.
