Thanks to everyone for their thoughts on unit testing. There is indeed
a PyUnit, it's part of the standard Python distribution (under the
package name unittest). However, it uses three packages that haven't
been implemented in IronPython yet - traceback, os and types - and
modifying it to remove these dependencies looks like more work than
writing a new (simpler) test framework.
Thanks also to everyone for the thoughts on IDEs.
A question for the development team - I appreciate that it's much too
early for anything precise, but when do you expect to be able to get a
1.0 release - in the sense of, will it be years or months from now?
