I'm a bit behind the times here, but I read today that one of the two remaining developers of IronRuby has left Microsoft:
Overall, I see a serious lack of commitment to IronRuby, and dynamic language on
.NET in general. At the time of my leaving Tomas and myself were the only Microsoft employees working on IronRuby.
So if Microsoft's interest in dynamic languages is wilting, and Oracle's litigation scares everyone away from Java, will that leave Parrot as the last one standing?
* yep, that's a formatting bug. I assume that it's not worth reporting while the site's future is unclear.
