I am using Alpha. Source analysis terribly slows down my computer and makes my typing not as smoothly as before. I can't bear with my mouse cursor turning into a circle any more when I just get a fresh idea or start wing. I bought my laptop a month ago, so it's performance is usually good when running other applications.

BTW, I still can't get the reason why wing would allocate such huge resources to source analysis. Most of time it doesn't help me much, except when it jumps out with a big chunk of parameters to frighten me. I don't need source analysis to remind me the parameters I am familiar with and I can't rely on source analysis to learn new functions as I rely on help().

So, could you please tell me how to turn source analysis off?

Thank you! I was wondering if the licence of Wing 6.1 is still valid on Wing and later?

Any Wing 6.1 license purchased now can be upgraded to a Wing 7 for free.  In general, users can upgrade for free to a new major version for a year after purchase -- see for details.  The current Wing 7 alpha uses evaluation licenses.

Could you submit a bug report from Wing's Help menu and check the check box to include the error-log?  This will send a log to us that will hopefully help with future Wing 7 development.

After submitting the bug report, I suggest you try to use Wing 6.1 rather than the alpha release of Wing 7.  It's a known problem that analysis takes significantly longer in Wing 7 than in Wing 6.1 and is something that we're working on.  The problems and limitations of the alpha release are listed at

The reason that Wing analyzes code is to help with navigation, provide autocompletion and argument lists, and to warn of possible problems.
