Python for .NET 1.0 beta 5 is now available - you can download
Python for .NET is a near-seamless integration of Python with the
.NET common language runtime. For more details, see the README.
The beta 5 release features a refactoring of thread management
support, making the runtime stable for multi-threaded applications,
as well as several improvements and bug-fixes.
Special thanks to all who sent in thread-related scenarios and test
cases! I have tried to incorporate as many of these as possible into
the unit tests - if you still have problems that you suspect may be
related to threading or interpreter lock issues, please let me know
There is also now a mailing list for discussion, questions and
issues related to Python for .NET at: firstname.lastname@example.org.

This should provide the beginnings of a migration path for current Zope 2 developers and hopefully actually accelerate the adoption and use of Zope 3 (since Z2 developers will now be able to take advantage of Z3 technologies in Z2 applications).
It was a pleasure to meet and work with so many of the superstars of the Zope community in the same room - I hope to be able to do it again in the future!
