PyCharm 4.0.5 RC is available

Dmitry Filippov

We are happy to announce the availability of PyCharm 4.0.5 Release Candidate. Since the previous bug-fix update in early January we’ve gathered a lot of fixes for different PyCharm’s subsystems. Actually we’re almost ready to release them to you as PyCharm 4.0.5, but before we do that, we’d like to make sure that this build doesn’t hide any surprises. That’s why we’re releasing PyCharm 4.0.5 RC today.

Installers for PyCharm 4.0.5 RC (build 139.1485) can be found on Early Access Preview page.

The complete list of changes is in the PyCharm 4.0.5 RC release notes. The most notable among them are: a critical fix for broken code insight for PyPy, a couple of fixes for unresolved NumPy functions, and a few important fixes for Django 1.7 support.

Patch updates from the previous versions should be available soon. Just make sure you’ve enabled the “Early Access Preview” update channel in your update settings. In case you want to keep your current PyCharm installation untouched but still want to try the new RC version, please don’t use the patch update – install the new version alongside from scratch instead.

We hope there’ll be no major bugs in this build and we’ll be able to give it a green light as PyCharm 4.0.5 within the next week.

As always, please report any problem you found to our public issue tracker. By doing so you help us make PyCharm better.

Develop with Pleasure!

    Any particular reason you are bundling this with a version of the JDK that you know can’t properly render fonts on OSX? IntelliJ has a custom JDK 1.8 that addresses most of the issues.

      PyCharm 4.0.5 is most probably the last build of the 4.0.x series. It’s being released from the stable 139 development branch (the branch of IntelliJ IDEA 14.0). This old branch doesn’t have those fixes allowing to run PyCharm 4.0.x on JDK 1.8 without consequent problems.
      Next version of PyCharm 4.x is going to be released from newer development branch of latest IntelliJ IDEA 14.1 so it will work on JDK 1.8 without the problems mentioned.

    well, jdk 1.8 helps font rendering and removes the flickering. Pycharm WITHOUT it is unusable on a Mac. not sure why you continue to alienate mac users but its odd to me considering its such a popular development platform.
