Thanks for the link. Your article was detailed and very helpful, my xap
files are going to be nice and small now.

My blog has up-to-date information about the Silverlight support for IPy.

 

We don't have a well-known server to host the DLLs on, but you can
definitely put the DLLs outside of the XAP. Checkout
sdksdk-0.3.0-bin.zip/bin/Chiron.exe.config ... there's documentation in
there that tells you how to configure Chiron to produce a XAP with the DLLs
outside. 

 

I talk about it in this blog post:

ght.html

 

Documentation is being written to go up on the codeplex site. Let me know if
you'd like to contribute to it.

This is from Michael's web site:

 

    - Including the IronPython assemblies in every application makes even
the simplest Dynamic Silverlight application painfully large. In answer to
this point in a comment on his blog, John Lam replied: "Depending on how you
configure your app, you can download the DSL dependencies (DLR + IronRuby)
in a separate XAP that comes from one of our servers (this isn't working
yet). So your XAP becomes something like 2K in that case. It will also be
cached in your browser cache so it is a one-time download.". So this story
will get better...

 

I looked on John Lam's blog and saw no updates on it since April. Was
wondering if there has been any progress on it and is it part of the
silverlight beta 2 and the sdk 0.3?

 

Thanks,

 

Vineet
