The future of IronRuby and IronPython
As expected Microsoft announced that will stop to maintain IronRuby\IronPython projects and they will go over to the community.
There were a lot of rumors about potential death of Iron* with Microsoft exit and doubts if .Net community is able to adopt these projects.
The great new is that Miguel de Icaza together with JB Evain, Michael Foord, Jeff Hardy and Jimmy Schementi agreed to coordinate the development of these languages.
Iron* will be involved in Mono's Continuous build system.
It seems that IronRuby\IronPython will get more integration with Mono eco-system - Mono runtime and libraries, MonoMac, MonoTouch.
