A lot has been happening in the past few days in the world of the DLR (Dynamic Language Runtime). It all kicked off on Friday, with a blog post by Jimmy Schementi, who ran the small team that put together the Dynamic Language Runtime, IronRuby and IronPython, announcing that he had quit his job at Microsoft over a week ago. In his post, he goes on to describe how the once small but mighty team he headed had achieved so much, such as the DLR, Silverlight and ASP.NET support for the Iron languages, and the beginnings of IDE support for them too.
