Wing Python IDE Early Access - February 8, 2019

The second beta release of Wing Python IDE version 7 is now available through our Early Access Program. Although you may find minor problems, this release is stable and usable for real work.

Some of the highlights of this release include:

New Dracula Dark Theme

This new dark mode color palette was based on the Dracula dark mode theme. To try it, select Dracula for the User Interface > Color Palette preference and be sure to check on Use Color Palette Throughout the UI.

High-Level Configuration Menu

This release adds a menu in the top right of the window that makes it easier to toggle dark mode, change keyboard personality for editor emulation, and make other common configuration changes. On Windows and Linux, the menu bar may also be hidden and incorporated into this menu.

This release also improves display on high DPI monitors on Windows and Linux. On Linux, Wing may now suggest a scale factor configuration based on inspection of your primary display.
