EPD 8 preview beta

EPD 8.0 beta takes all that we know and love in EPD 7.x and adds an all-new
graphical development and analysis environment.  The new GUI is focused on
providing a fast, lightweight interface designed for scientists and
engineers.  Some of the key features are:

  * A Python-centric text editor including tab-completion plus on-the-fly
    code analysis.
  * An interactive Python (IPython) prompt integrated with the code editor
    to enable rapid prototyping and exploration.
  * A Python package manager to make is easier to discover, install, and
    update packages in the Enthought Python Distribution.
  * Integrated documentation, both on the GUI itself and standard online
