Hi,

We're happy to announce the release of Wing IDE 3.0 beta 1.  It is available from
http://wingware.com/wingide/beta

Changes since the previous (alpha) release include:

* Zope WingDBG debugging now uses single thread like it did in Wing 2.x
* Improved speed of indentation tracking
* Multiple test file patterns can be entered for a project
* Drag-n-drop doesn't start until mouse moves
* Block cursor for vi
* Improved display of files with same name in tabs
* Many other bug fixes and some optimizations

The CHANGELOG.txt file in the installation provides additional details.

The major new features introduced in Wing 3.0 are:

* Multi-threaded debugger
* Debug value tooltips in editor, debug probe, and interactive shell
* Autocompletion in debug probe and interactive shell
* Automatically updating project directories
* Testing tool, currently supporting unittest derived tests (*)
* OS Commands tool for executing and interacting with external commands (*)
* Rewritten indentation analysis and conversion

(*)'d items are available in Wing IDE Professional only.

System requirements are Windows 2000 or later, OS X 10.3.9 or later for PPC or
Intel (requires X11 Server), or a recent Linux system (either 32 or 64 bit).

Compatibility Notes
-------------------

The file pattern in the Testing tab of Project Properties will need
to be re-entered if the project was saved with the prior alpha releases.

Reporting Bugs
--------------

Please report bugs using the Submit Bug Report item in the Help menu or by
emailing support at wingware dot com.  This is beta quality software that
installs side-by-side with Wing 2.x or 1.x. We advise you to make frequent
backups of your work when using any pre-release version of Wing IDE.

---------

To upgrade a 2.x license or purchase a new 3.x license:

Purchase       https://wingware.com/store/purchase

Any 2.x license sold after May 2nd 2006 is free to upgrade; others cost
1/2 normal price to upgrade.

If you are not ready to upgrade, feel free to keep using a series of trial
licenses. There will be no limit on the number of trials until 3.0 final is out.
