[IronPython] IronPython 0.9 released

Hi Keith!
LoadWithPartialName may be indeed removed as the build-time warning suggests suggests. There is a good reasoning behind removing the method (what version, from where, etc ... would the method call load? I think there is a blog out there that talks more about the reasoning:

When the method is removed, IronPython will have to cease using it. At the alpha-stage of the development we chose to take advantage of it, but we will find a long-term solution in the due time.
The test skipping Pystone, Parrotbench and CPython regression test suites is correct behavior. These tests are not shipping with our code so I wrote the test script so that if it doesn't find them in expected locations, it will skip the tests. Once I am back in Redmond, I am going to post instructions where from to download what to get the tests running. At least pystone and partotbench. Problem with CPython regression test suite is that we had to make few modifications to the test suite code to get it running so it may be more complicated to get those tests running. However, as we work on running the CPython tests (one of major items on our list from now on) the need for modifying them will be less and hopefully soon everyone will be able to run them without modifications.

Just noticing this warning.. Is LoadWithPartialName expected to remain in 2.0 since it's close to RTM?


'System.Reflection.Assembly.LoadWithPartialName(string)' is obsolete: 'This method has been deprecated. Please use Assembly.Load() instead. http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?linkid=14202'


C:\Program Files (x86)\IronPython-0.9\IronPython\Objects\ReflectedPackage.cs     line 72   column 25




Tab completion's cool :-)


Have you been able to run the tests on XP x64 yet?  I tried TestAll.py and it skipped Pystone, ParrotBench, and Python Regression.
