>  The DLR is going to be taking a dependency on CLR 2.0 SP1 in the coming

> 2.0.50727.1433) shipped back in November of 2007, and is available as a
> standalone download, and is included with .Net Framework 3.5. It includes a
> number of important bug fixes in it that let us take out some workarounds in
> our codebase. We'll be putting in runtime checks in our codebase to guard
> against running in CLR 2.0, since this will cause code to blow up at runtime
> inside of our dynamic sites.
> We are also going to be transitioning to C# 3.0 syntax in our sources as
> well, although there won't be a dependency taken on System.Core, which means
> that CLR 2.0 SP1 is all that users will need to have installed to run
> IronRuby.
> Please let us know if you foresee problems with these changes.
