Early Access Program Releases

PyCharm 5 Release Candidate is available

We are now approaching the final steps towards the PyCharm 5 release. So today we’ve published the PyCharm 5 Release Candidate.

The PyCharm 5 RC build 143.526 is available for download from the Early Access Preview page. Please take it for a spin and give us your feedback.

PyCharm 5 Release Candidate includes mostly a consolidation of bug fixes as compared to the previous PyCharm 5 Beta build. For the detailed list of notable changes and improvements in this build, please check the Release Notes.

In case you missed what’s new in upcoming PyCharm 5 – please see the announcement of PyCharm 5 Beta or for detailed information, check the announcements of previous EAP builds.

You can download the build or upgrade from within the IDE (from previous PyCharm 5 EAP builds only) without a full re-installation using the patch-based upgrade. Just make sure you’ve selected the EAP or Beta Releases channel in the update settings.

We hope that there will be no major bugs, however, should you encounter any problems, please report them to YouTrack – we’ll still have a bit of time to fix stuff before the final release.

Stay tuned for a PyCharm 5 release announcement, follow us on twitter, and develop with pleasure!
