Saqib Ullah BootStrapper Know How
IronRuby is the second .NET implementation from Microsoft that's based on an open source dynamic language. The first, IronPython, which shipped in August 2006, was developed to run directly on the .NET 2.0 Common Language Runtime (CLR). Announced at MIX07, along with Silverlight 1.1 for .NET, IronRuby is designed to take advantage of Microsoft's upcoming Dynamic Language Runtime (DLR), a set of services on top of the CLR. Microsoft plans to build four dynamic language implementations -- IronRuby, IronPython, Dynamic Visual Basic (VB 10) and Managed JScript.
"The main reason we're not accepting contributions back into the [IronRuby] compiler is that the interfaces between the compiler and the DLR haven't been finalized and probably won't be for about a year," explains Lam. "The DLR itself is going to ship along with the next version of the CLR, so we want to make sure that from an IP standpoint we're very clean on that stuff."
