It is much more polished than my Python in the Browser, with features including:
- Saving of preferences
- Autocomplete and call tips
- The ability to switch processing to a background thread
"New in this release is the ability to run on the desktop with WPF, execution of code in background threads, and a scratchpad canvas for playing with UI controls."
"There are still some bugs lurking in the intellisense code, and I'll be following soon with a bugfix release. But it works, and you can try it out. I find it more user friendly than the command prompt."
As well as being a fun and potentially useful tool, it is a good example of how web and desktop applications can be maintained with similar codebases through Silverlight and WPF.
