Sympl sample language and can be built with Visual Studio 2008:
This release has several design cleanups and final calls for the bits we’re shipping in CLR 4.0. This release is also consistent with Visual Studio’s Beta1 release in that these sources (with namespace tweaks) were used for parts of CLR 4.0. Documents have all been updated, and there is a new walkthrough document for an example language implementation on the DLR. The language, Sympl, has a C# and an IronPython implementation in the source tree, along with some example code written in Sympl. There are many one-off examples for Expression Trees node types that are in the DLR source tree now.Jimmy Schementi did the work for this build.
This release is compatible with IronPython 2.6 Beta 1. Currently it does not include Language Services Support and project templates. To create a new IronPython ASP.NET WebForms project, simply copy the “examples\hello-webforms” to a new directory and rename the directory to your liking. A redistributed copy of IronPython 2.6 Beta 1 can be found in the “bin” directory; all files except Microsoft.Web.Scripting.dll, the IronPython ASP.NET integration, are from the IronPython 2.6 Beta 1 release.
Included in this release are two WebForms examples that are written in IronPython: “hello-webforms” and “album-handler”, which can be found in the “examples” directory. “hello-webforms” is a simple web application that shows PostBack handling, and “album-handler” is a larger web application that creates a photo album from a directory of images and generates thumbnails for them on the fly.
