There's still no direct LINQ support.  We believe we're getting the correct architecture in place to support extension methods in v2.0 (note though we still haven't done the actual work to enable the extension methods and when we ship the first 2.0 builds there will be no dependencies on Orcas).  This will enable much of the LINQ abilities in a convenient to use syntax.  Until then you can clr.AddReference to the LINQ libraries and call the static extension methods directly but it'll be ugly.  

 

Other than that we still haven't gotten to figuring out how to support LINQ in a more direct form.

Hi, IronPythoners

 

In May 10, 2006 ,I post a discussion about IronPython and LINQ, complete discussion url is :http://lists.ironpython.com/pipermail/users-ironpython.com/2006-May/002300.html 


And now Orcas Beta 1 is released, I again inquire about can I use LINQ in IronPython.

Because ,IronPython now only use ado.net to access database, if we can use LINQtoSQL to access SQL Server. It's cool!
