I just installed Wing 6.0.6-1, and my firewall is telling me that wing-internal-python wants to receive incoming connections. How come? Is this something new?

This isn't new on our end. When we launch a debug process or start the process for the Python Shell we launch it with command line arguments that tell it where to connect, and the IDE listens for and accepts the connection. The same model is now also used for setting up the connection from the remote agent, when doing remote development. However, we also establish an SSH tunnel for those connections first.
