Python is an amazing programming language that makes software development productive and fun. Python is open source, was created by a community of thousands of developers world-wide, and is used by about 14% of all programmers today. These are my thoughts as a user, advocate, co-author of an IDE for Python, and a director of the Python Software Foundation.

Wing IDE 3.0 released

Wingware just released version 3.0 final of its integrated development environment for Python. New features include multi-threaded debugging, hover tips with debug data values, auto-completion in the Python Shell and Debug Probe, auto-updating projects, a unit testing tool, better external command integration options, and a few other things.

One significant/interesting addition is support for Stackless Python out of the box. This very suddenly became one of our top-requested feature as game developers started using Stackless for their online game servers.

We've also released Wing 101, which is a free scaled back version designed for teaching entry level programming courses.

Details are of course at
