Annual Use License Option

Wing 6 adds the option of purchasing a lower-cost expiring annual 
license for Wing Pro.  An annual license includes access to all 
available Wing Pro 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 Pro will continue to be available at the 
same pricing.

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

interactive debug probe, multi-process and child process debugging, move 
program counter, conditional breakpoints, debug watch, 
framework-specific support (for Jupyter, Django, and others), find
