Reviews for this release

Been using with IronPython 2.7 for almost a week now and looking pretty good - glad to see sending indented snippets to the console is fixed. Any quirks so far have been related to going from VS2012 to VS2013 to make use of this Beta. Glad we had licenses in house....

Has VS2012 been forgotten? Is VS2012 in the PTVS roadmap?

Afraid so, we're very much focused on VS 2013 and VS 2015 for this release. If there are critical bug fixes needed then we'll look at a special update for that, but ultimately we can't support it forever and we believe there are enough free options for VS 2013 that it won't affect too many people. Feel free to start a discussion if you feel you have a strong case for why we should keep it on the list for 2.2.
