IronRuby logo Microsoft's Jimmy Schementi and the IronRuby team have announced the first stable version of IronRuby, the Ruby runtime for the .NET platform's Dynamic Language Runtime (DLR. IronRuby 1.0 is available in two versions, one for .NET 4.0 and one for .NET 2.0 SP1; the former is more .NET feature complete and has faster start up, the latter is compatible with the Novell developed, .NET compatible Mono. IronRuby is generally Ruby 1.8.6 compatible and supports Rails 2.3.5.

The developers have been working on stability and maturity, and in the 1.0 release the RubyInside blog noted that according to the site, IronRuby has achieved a 85.95% pass rate on the RubySpec tests. IronRuby scores 98.31% on the language part of the test part; most of the RubySpec non-compliance occurs in the libraries.

IronRuby 1.0 is licensed under the Microsoft Public Licence and is available to download from Microsoft's Codeplex hosting site. Full details of the changes are included in the release notes.
