    This version (and can be 4.5.1 and later) has ‘new comer blocker’. Please see issue PY-17100 JUST NOW. Project encoding are always ignored, and default encoding detection always fail with some Windows environment.

    Ember.js support would be most welcomed – like imports, or keeping indexing at bay when ember-cli does it magic. :)

    I currently have 4.5.4 Pro.

    It doesn’t see available update to version 5, unless I select Early Access Program in the Updates settings.
    With “New Major Version Releases” it says it’s up to date (build PY-141.2569).

    Is that correct?

    It seems that the license files have disappeared from the distribution. I’m also having a hard time to find the license on the site that applies to each product variant. I’m looking for the legal agreement, not the code or the “usage type”.

    These files were in the distribution and now aren’t anymore:

    I didn’t choose to import old settings neither to have old cached data, so the installation was brand new.

    The initial startup time was way faster than 4.5.4 on Windows 7 64bit with Java 1.8 uodate 65 (HotSpot 64-Bit Server VM).

    I also editied the file C:\Users\user\.PyCharm50\pycharm64.exe.vmoptions
    to use more memory:
