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

Download from SourceForge:
http://sourceforge.net/projects/fepy

FePy project aims to provide enhancements and add-ons for IronPython.
http://fepy.sourceforge.net/

This release is built with Mono 1.2.3.1. As this release has dropped a
patch to support Mono without Socket.{Send,Receive}BufferSize
implementation, it won't work with Mono versions below 1.2.3.

It has been a long time (more than 5 months) since the last release.
In the mean time, DLR-based IronPython 2.0 Alpha 1 was revealed, and
it was subsequently ported to Mono. As this codebase is still new,
IPCE will be based on IronPython 1.1 for the time being.

Also note that IronPython 2.0 Alpha 1 has significant performance
regression on Mono (but not on MS.NET) compared to IronPython 1.1.
