Wing IDE 4.0 beta3 released: Supports interactive matplotlib

We've made a new beta release for Wing IDE 4.0.  This release adds:
  • Support for working interactively with matplotlib in the Python Shell and Debug Probe, using the TkAgg, WXAgg (for wxPython 2.5+), Qt4Agg, and GTKAgg backends.
  • Reduced CPU usage at startup and when switching projects.  You may see an initial reanalysis of all your files since the analysis cache system has changed.  After that, startup and project switching should be faster.
  • Updated French localization (thanks to Jean Sanchez!)
  • Several other minor improvements:  See the change log for details
