    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. 🙂

    my subjective feeling is that ide is for me slow and usage unpleasantly, sorry.

    • hippocrates says:

      I feel the same too. This new version seems to be way slower, especially with bringing up the context menu. The .csv cannot be shown as data table too.

      I’m reverting to PyCharm 4.5 which works wonderfully. Hopefully version 5.0 will be fixed soon.

      • Andee says:

        I’m having to revert too, autocomplete basically crashes the IDE every time.

        As a result I’ll hold off subscribing, too.

          I take everything I just said back. Invalidating the cache solved the issues for me.

        • Tony says:

          November 7, 2015

          Context menu takes ages to come up for me. Seemed at first that invalidating cache fixed the issue, but only temporarily. Looking forward to the fix.

      • Johannes says:

        November 4, 2015

        Same here… ontext menu sometimes needs minutes to come up! I hope for soon Fix

        I have to +1 on this. 5.0 is much slower. 🙁

      • Robert H says:

        November 5, 2015

        Mine is slow too. 3 seconds to bring up context menu.
        About 2 seconds to parse/check code after edit.

        4.5 was much much quicker!

        After increasing of number processors in vbox it is ok.
        (ubuntu under virtualbox , now 2 CPUs)

        Thanks everyone for the feedback. These are known issues. We’re going to release PyCharm 5.0.1 with critical fixes very soon.

        • Rene Dohmen says:

          November 10, 2015

          Any insight on a release data for 5.0.1?

          I tried all suggestions here; but it only helps for a couple of minutes to clear the cache. Downgrading now; so I can work.

            We’re releasing 5.0.1 today

    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?

    • Dmitry Filippov says:

      November 6, 2015

      It should show you the message that PyCharm 5 is available. However we don’t provide automatic patch updates between major versions, so you have to download and install the newest PyCharm 5 manually from:
      We’ll check why you didn’t get the notification.

    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:
