Jim Hugunin created the project and actively contributed to it up until Version 1.0 which was released on September 5, 2006. Thereafter, it was maintained by a small team at Microsoft until the 2.7 Beta 1 release; Microsoft stopped internal development of IronPython in late 2010. IronPython 2.0 was released on December 10, 2008. The DLR, IronPython2 and IronPython3 are maintained by Alex Earl and countless other contributors!
