This is the fifth release of IronPython Community Edition (IPCE).

You can download it from SourceForge.
http://sourceforge.net/projects/fepy

FePy project aims to provide enhancements and add-ons for IronPython.

Binary is built with Mono 1.2.2.1. It is strongly recommended to use
Mono versions above 1.2.2, as it fixes GC.CollectionCount issue properly.
You may meet unexplained NotImplementedError in the long-running
process otherwise. (Thanks Paolo Molaro.)

There's not much updates, but I figured that releasing early & often
would be better...
