  • IronRuby on OS X

    We had a visitor on #ironruby today asking for help getting IR running on his mac. I gave him the following directions, and they seemed to work aside from one glitch. I tested them on my wife’s mac, and it worked for me, too. Install Mono You can grab the Mono .dmg from go-mono.com. This […]

  • dlr-languages_20090805+git.e6b28d27+dfsg-1_amd64.changes ACCEPTED

    I’m happy to announce that after the filing of an Intent to Package and nearly 2 years of work, IronRuby 0.9, IronPython 2.6b2, and the DLR are now in Debian. To my knowledge, this is the first package in Debian with direct and active upstream support from Microsoft. Kudos for this release go to Jo […]

  • Well, that was an eventful day!

    *whew* I did a bunch of things yesterday. We took our kindergärtner to her first Friday at her new school (and were about 10 minutes tardy. oops). We then took our toddler to a nearby playground with swings and slides and let her expend some energy. After she had been sufficiently exercised, we walked back […]

  • dlr-languages package passes another hurdle

    It looks like the upload of the Iron* languages to Debian is imminent. We’ve gotten the debian/watch file downloading a tarball of the git tag we’ve chosen for this release. This was the last bit meebey needed in order to present it to the maintainer of ironpython in lenny. He has agreed to let the […]

  • Randal Schwartz interviews Michael Foord about IronPython

    The FLOSS Weekly folks (including my homie, Randal) just published this week’s interview. It is with Michael Foord, who I just met a couple weeks ago. He published a book about IronPython. He mentions Mono, the DLR and IronRuby, too ;)

  • Looking to get Iron* and the DLR into RedHat

    I sent an email to the Fedora Legal list asking whether they will accept software released under the MS-PL license. My friend and former colleague, Brett Lentz mentioned that he was concerned that the Fedora folks might not accept software released under the MS-PL. So I asked. I also bcc’d a certain troll on said […]

  • dlr-languages packaging

    An update on recent changes to the IronRuby packaging. We’ve changed the name of the source package because We’re packaging IronPython as well as IronRuby (thanks doko!) I’ve added the wrapper scripts (irake, igem, etc.). Maybe this is showing that I’m not a heavy user… After building meebey’s packages and installing them: $ cat /etc/debian_version […]

  • Matthew Broderick broke The Music Man.

    I was reading Lefty’s recent blog post and was reminded (by way of a certain scene) of being pissed off by Broderick’s s/egg/globe/ in the 2003 production of The Music Man. I was going to put the following in the comments, but I decided not to in order to keep the conversation on topic :) […]

  • Bugzilla needs a JSON-RPC implementation in JS under MPL or compatible

    Likely released under MIT/X11 or the Mozilla Public License. I’m looking around to find one. Maybe Mono has one in the AJAX contribution it recently received from Microsoft. It’s licensed under Ms-PL, though, so I don’t know if it qualifies. Thoughts? Do you know of one? Thanks.
