Annual Use License Option

Wing 6 adds the option of purchasing a lower-cost expiring annual 
license for Wing IDE Pro.  An annual license includes access to all 
available Wing IDE versions while it is valid, and then ceases to 
function if it is now renewed.  Pricing for annual licenses is US$ 
179/user for Commercial Use and US$ 69/user for Non-Commercial Use.

Perpetual licenses for Wing IDE will continue to be available at the 
same pricing.

The cost of extending Support+Upgrades subscriptions on Non-Commercial 
Use perpetual licenses for Wing IDE Pro has also been dropped from US$ 
89 to US$ 39 per user.

  It now also includes the Source Browser, PyLint, and OS Commands 
tools, and supports the scripting API and Perspectives.

debugging, testing and code management features, such as remote host 
access, refactoring, find uses, version control, unit testing, 
interactive debug probe, multi-process and child process debugging, move 
program counter, conditional breakpoints, debug watch, 
framework-specific support (for matplotlib, Django, and others), find 
symbol in project, and other features.
