    Pynguin is a python-based turtle graphics application.
        It combines an editor, interactive interpreter, and
        graphics display area.

    It is meant to be an easy environment for introducing
        some programming concepts to beginning programmers.

    This release continues to expand basic functionality and
        explores more user-friendly options in the interface.


    Pynguin is tested with Python 2.7.1 and PyQt 4.8.3 and
        will use Pygments syntax highlighting if available.

    Pynguin is released under GPLv3.

        Session
            - all settings now moved in to menus and settings dialogs

        Pynguin API
            - added .label() method to have a label attached to a pynguin
                - also accessible as .name attribute
            - added .speed() method to change speed from user code
            - viewcoords() now returns integers by default
                - pass floats=True to get the float values instead

        Integrated Editor

            - improved handling of external .py files

        Integrated Console

        Examples
