PyCharm 2016.2 EAP 3 (build 162.1024)

A week ago we announced the second PyCharm 2016.2 EAP build with lots of new neat features and improvements such as:

  • vmprof Profiler support
  • An Optimize Imports configuration
  • The Thread suspend option on a breakpoint
  • Pandas Dataframes Viewer
  • and more

Today we continue the weekly delivery of PyCharm 2016.2 preview builds with the PyCharm 2016.2 EAP 3 build 162.1024. Download and try it today!

Compared to the previous EAP build, this one includes a consolidation of fixes for various bugs. The only new small change in this build is package installation from requirements.txt with extras. Now PyCharm understands the syntax of extra options in requirements.txt files, automatically installing all the specified extras. As an example, now you can use following code in your reqirements.txt files:

The full list of changes comparing to the previous EAP build is available in the Release notes.

Please take PyCharm 2016.2 EAP build 162.1024 for a spin! Should you encounter any problems, please report them to our public tracker.

You can download the build or use the patch-based upgrade to upgrade from within the IDE (from the previous PyCharm 2016.2 EAP build only) without a full re-installation. Just make sure you’ve selected the EAP channel in update settings.

    Patch update from previous EAP (162.917.20) does not work. It says I already have the latest PyCharm. I have the Early Access Program channel selected in System Settings > Updates.
