I backported ironpython (2.6 Beta 2 DEBUG ( for karmic and
lucid and tested it on both ubuntu 9.10 and daily build of future 10.04.
I noticed two "bugs" (inconveniences might be a better word):

1. The command "import sys; print(sys.path)" doesn't contain python-2.6
directories by default. The older ironpython (1.1.1) does. Is this

2. In the interactive shell, ctrl-z doesn't close the app anymore, I
have  to use "killall -9 ipy" as well. However, "import sys; sys.exit()"
works! This reply in a bug report saved the day: http://bugs.debian.org

The log for the first point:
$ ipy

Other than that, it looks pretty stable to me!
