Python, Java, Ruby, Oh My! Silverlight Alpha 1.1 ships with Dynamic Language Support

Mix 07 kicked off today with keynotes from Ray Ozzie and Scott Guthrie.  Amongst announcements regarding media and Silverlight Scott Guthrie announced the release of a cross-platform version of the .NET framework within Silverlight Alpha 1.1.  Included is a Dynamic Language Runtime that allows developers to use languages such as Python, Java and Ruby to program in Silverlight.

I could drone on about this but we decided to go sit down with two of the individuals who contributed to this effort:  Jim Hugunin and John Lam instead.  Jim, who we interviewed before, gives us some insight into this announcement including some information about new MS-PL releases to Codeplex tied to this announcement (Hint:  IronPython 2.0).

Later today, we will post the second interview with John Lam.
