[wingide-users] Patch for debugger / interactive shell

A new patch is available from the support downloads area for Wing
IDE version 1.1b7, both for Windows and Linux:

Unpack this into your Wing installation to replace existing files.

This makes a variety of changes:

- Problems with __main__ scope were fixed; this applies to the
  interactive shell and also the main debug process.  Previously,
  there were differences in behaviour within and outside of the 
  debugger, including failure to run some code.

- Splits interactive shell into two distinct tools, the Debug Probe
  which acts only in the context of a selected frame of a paused
  debug process, and the Python Shell which acts like a normal
  interactive python prompt.

- Interactive shell now runs under the correct version of Python
  (same as used for the debug process).

- Avoid bringing up the debugger window at odd times

- Properly restore focus to the interactive shell text area when
  buttons are used

Please note that version 1.1b7-2 is planned for release Monday
Sept 17th and will include this and all previously released
patches to 1.1b7-1.
