Hi,

We've just released the second release candidate of Wing IDE 5.0:

http://wingware.com/wingide/5.0rc2

Changes in this releases include:

* Avoid Qt4 version incompatibilities on Linux by using private Qt by 
default in more cases
* Fixed failure to start on some OS X machines
* Open files in Wing when double clicked or dragged to dock on OS X
* Fix support for PyLint version 1.0.0+
* Updated German localization (thanks for Chris Heitkamp)
* Fixed some color palette bugs
* Don't shrink icons in the auto-completer
* Set non-default font size correctly on OS X
* Several other bug fixes

For details see 
http://wingware.com/pub/wingide/prerelease/5.0.0-rc2/CHANGELOG.txt

Note:  This release candidate may run sluggishly on Mavericks due to a 
driver bug that
causes the OS to slow down Wing even when it is actively working.  A 
work-around is to
put the display to sleep and then wake it up again.

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
* Support for Python 3.4

Please report bugs from Wing IDE's Help menu.

Thanks,
