PyCharm 2.6.2 Release Candidate

Today we’ve published the RC build for the next bugfix update of PyCharm. This build fixes critical issues related to symlink handling, remote interpreters and copy/paste, as well as problems with code insight and the Django support.

You can check out the complete release notes and download the new build from the EAP page. The update from the IDE will also become available in a short while, for those of you who have previously used EAP builds of PyCharm or set the update channel to EAP in Settings | Updates.

Provided that no new major problems turn up, the final 2.6.2 update will be out in a couple of days. And if you do run into problems, please report them to YouTrack.

    I tested pycharm on windows and the remote interpreter feature doesn’t work unless you manually create a .ssh/knownhosts file in the user’s home directory (no sensible error, tracked down from the stack trace in the log).

      Which version did you test? The exception with missing known_hosts is fixed in 2.6.2 RC.

        That was in 2.6.1, glad to hear it’s fixed.
