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 3.0.5 and 3.1beta3 released

Wingware has just released two new versions of its Python IDE:

Version 3.0.5 is a bug fix release that improves many aspects of the vi keyboard mode. It also fixes some problems with CPU loading, and various other relatively minor usability issues. Details are in the change log.

Version 3.1 beta3 is a more interesting release: It adds a How-To for using Wing with the Google App Engine, adds support for scanning for sys.path changes in the main debug file (including those used by buildout), makes the integrated Python Shell work better with threaded code, adds a preference for auto-stripping trailing white space on save, and makes lots of minor improvements to the other new functionality in version 3.1 (for details on those see the feature list on the beta testing page).
