  • Added experimental Eclipse style key binding
  • Several auto-editing improvements
  • 12 vi mode fixes
  • Avoid grouping snippets and arg entry into a single undo action
  • Speed up auto-completion and auto-editing
  • About 25 other bug fixes and minor improvement

  1. Thanks for making the Windows Zip installer available .. Its a relief to have it if I dont have admin rights to a PC ;-\

  2. Thanks also for the superior Python shell implemented in WingIde. The auto-complete, and the source-assistant complement the Python shell in an excellent way!

  3. Glad you like it! Don't hesitate to email us at support at wingware dot com if you have any questions, suggestions, or run into any problems.
