IronPython 2.0.1 is a minor update to IronPython 2.0 which in turn is a CPython 2.5 compatible release running under the .NET platform. Our top priority for this release was improving upon performance while retaining complete backwards compatibility with IronPython 2.0. One of many notable areas we’ve improved upon is that float-integer comparisons are now 74% faster than they were in 2.0. A full report documenting changes in interpreter performance from 2.0 to 2.0.1 can be found at http://www.codeplex.com/IronPython/Wiki/View.aspx?title=IP201VsIP20Perf. A special thanks goes out to Resolver Systems for helping us in identifying areas needing performance improvements.
