Turns out IronRuby, IronPython, and the DLR are basically the same 6-7 people at Microsoft; for example, while I primarily work on IronRuby, I made the IronPython website and work on the Silverlight integration. Dino Viehland is the lead dev of IronPython, and the only dev on the tools, so naturally Python was first. Given our team size, we haven't gotten to releasing tooling for Ruby yet.

Though, when I spoke at RubyConf 2009, I said after IronRuby 1.0 we would be definitely working on VS integration: http://blog.jimmy.schementi.com/2009/12/ironruby-rubyconf-2009-part-4-project.html. Again, given our team site, unfortunately you'll have to be patient for the first version, or try to beat us to the punch. =)

Subject: [Ironruby-core] IronPython VS2010 Tools for IronRuby?

I have been following IronRuby for a while now as i have with IronPython and it seems like IronPython gets a lot more attention then IronRuby. While this may or may not be true from a development standpoint, from a visual standpoint its looks to be true. So i was wondering if the DLR team or whoever is in charge of the Visual Studio 2010 tools for IronPython would also be releasing a toolset for IronRuby? I am guessing the two teams are different but it would be a shame to leave IronRuby out in the cold while IronPython gets the royal treatment.
