Boo: Statically typed Python with type inference is done (well, kinda ;-)

Came across this via daily python url (which everybody reads anyway :)

http://boo.codehaus.org/

Read the manifesto at

Perhaps that .NET / Mono thing is going to be worthwhile after
all. Projects seem to be suprisingly succesful on it.

So it seems. Boo, also, seems attractive (at least to the eyes of two
Python outsiders I discussed it with, people who would like Python but
don't have a chance in their corporations to use it).

What's the status of IronPython btw? Will it have a chance to get a
presence and momentum in the oncoming .NET/Mono imperium?

Stay tuned, folks.

I agree. Coming from an all-MS shop, Python sometimes ends up being
the square peg in the round hole for me. I use it where possible, but
even with the help of the win32 libraries, it doesn't always "feel
right". I look forward to using Boo or IronPython (should it ever be
released) in my day-to-day .NET dealings.

Maybe Jim could actually comment on this? I haven't heard anything
about the project since PyCon back in March.
