I am happy to announce some changes to the licensing model for Wing 
IDE.  These are designed to better address the needs of our customers:

1) The per-OS licensing constraint has been lifted.  All Wing 4.x 
licenses, including those purchased during the beta period, can be used 
on any or all of the supported OSes.

2) For Wing IDE Pro, licenses are now priced according to whether they 
are used commercially ($245) or non-commercially ($95).  Non-commercial 
licenses are available to students, educators, unpaid hobbyists, and 
publicly funded non-profits. Wing IDE Personal licenses cost $45/license.

3) For Wing IDE Professional Commercial Use licenses, we are now 
offering 5-pack pricing ($1150 each).  We continue to offer volume 
discounts on 10 or more licenses.

4) We are now offering paid Support+Upgrades subscriptions as described 
at http://wingware.com/support/agreement.  Wing IDE Pro licenses come 
with one year of Support+Upgrades coverage.  Subscriptions can be 
renewed or added to Non-Commercial or Wing IDE Personal licenses at a 
cost of $89/year per license.  Upgrades without a subscription cost 1/2 
the regular license price.

5) We continue to offer free licenses for unpaid open source developers 
and for classroom use of Wing IDE. See details at 

6) Wing IDE Professional Commercial Use licenses are now explicitly 
designated as transferable.
