We're pleased to announce Wing IDE 2.0rc1, the first release candidate for Wing IDE 2.0. This version is available on Windows, Linux, and Mac OS X.

This release includes over 170 bug fixes and improvements since version 2.0b5. New features include optimized startup time, editor operations, and source browser, support for Asian text encodings (those in CJKCodecs modules), extended support for auto-completion in builtin and standard library extension modules, improved keyboard navigability, many editor improvements, and much more.

This is a candidate for release as 2.0 final. Testing will continue for several weeks to ensure the highest possible quality for the final release.
