Changes since beta5 include:

* Periodically flush output from long-running tasks in Python Shell and 
Debug Probe

   file or entry point debug properties dialog when not auto-shown
* Added a way to deactivate and remove a license from the About box
* Lots of bug fixes (see the change log for details)

A summary of new features in Wing 5:

* Redesigned GUI based on Qt and PySide
* Native GUI on OS X (and better overall OS-native look and feel)
* Tools and editors can be dragged around
* Toolbar and editor and Project context menus are configurable
* Optional mode that opens different sets of files in each editor split
* Sharable color palettes and syntax highlighting configurations
* Auto-editing is on by default (except some operations that have a 
learning curve)
* Named file sets
* Sharable launch configurations
* Named entry points
* More control over unit testing environment
* Lockable editor splits
* Initial preferences dialog for new users

There are details at http://wingware.com/wingide/5.0beta6

The above also includes a list of the known bugs, information on

compatibility notes, and links for downloading and installing.

This release is quite usable, but please keep in mind that you probably will
run into some problems.
