We're pleased to announce the release of the "IronRuby CTP for .NET 4.0 Beta 2". This is our
third preview of IronRuby running under the Dynamic Language Runtime that is built directly
into a .NET 4.0 release. As before, this release allows you to use IronRuby objects and types
as .NET 4.0 dynamic objects from within C# and Visual Basic code. These binaries are roughly
equivalent to the functionality found in IronRuby 0.9. Please also note that the IronRuby CTP
for .NET 4.0 Beta 2 will run only under .NET 4.0 Beta 2.

This release also includes the binaries for the IronPython 2.6 CTP for .NET 4.0 Beta 2.

To try out this release:
- Install NET 4.0 Beta 2 or Visual Studio 2010 Beta 2: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/vstudio/dd582936.aspx
- Download this release: http://ironruby.codeplex.com/Release/ProjectReleases.aspx?ReleaseId=33305
- Follow any of the many dynamic walkthroughs online. This would be a good start: http://blogs.msdn.com/vbteam/archive/2008/12/17/walkthrough-dynamic-programming-in-visual-basic-10-0-and-c-4-0-lisa-feigenbaum.aspx
