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

Get it here.

This release is also available on SourceForge mirrors near you.

IPCE has a homepage. You can read about licenses and patches there.
There's also some new documentations like FePy Library Reference.

Changes in this release:

* Latest and greatest!

Updated to IronPython 1.0.1.
Updated to CPython 2.4.4.
Compiled with Mono 1.1.18.

* Relicensed under the MIT license, for those who found previous
license terms (Do What The Fuck You Want To Public License) offensive,
or humor-impaired.

* New CPython-compatible wrappers.

zlib, using System.IO.Compression.
hashlib, using System.Security.Cryptography.
sqlite3, using generic DB-API module already developed.

hashlib and sqlite3 are modules new in CPython 2.5.

* Updated CPython-compatible wrappers.

Numerous updates to pyexpat. Previously, pyexpat.py was only intended
to run ElementTree. It is now compatible enough to run xml.dom and
xml.sax codes.

* Patches to Python standard library.

patch-stdlib-tarfile-null-terminated fixes (arguably) a bug.

patch-stdlib-httplib-disable-idna and patch-stdlib-xml-sax-import are
workarounds, but changes are minimal and make using httplib and
xml.sax much better on IronPython.
