Announcing Wing IDE 101 for teaching intro programming courses

P: n/a
Hi,

We're pleased to announce the first public beta release of Wing IDE 101,
a free scaled back edition of Wing IDE that was designed for teaching
introductory programming courses.

We are releasing Wing IDE 101 to the general public in the hopes
that it may help others teach with or learn Python. Wingware also
offers educational pricing for Wing IDE Professional, including steep
discounts for class room use. If you are interested in teaching
Python with Wing IDE, please email su*****@wingware.com for more
information.

Key features of Wing IDE 101 include:

* Powerful Editor -- Syntax highlighting, goto-definition, navigation
menus, error indicators, auto-indent, and keyboard emulation for
Visual Studio, VI/Vim, Emacs, and Brief.
* Python Shell -- Evaluate files and selections in the integrated Python shell.
* Graphical Debugger -- Set breakpoints and view stack and program data.

Note that Wing IDE 101 omits auto-completion and most other code intelligence
features found in the other Wing IDE products. This was by design, so that
students are more conscious of the details of the language and the modules
that they are learning about.

Wing IDE 101 is available on Windows, Linux, and Mac OS X. It is free for all
non-commercial uses and does not require a license code to run. Wing 101
is not, however, open source.

The current release is 3.0 beta1 and is available here:
