Today we continue the weekly delivery of PyCharm 2016.3 preview builds with the PyCharm 2016.2 EAP build 163.6512.
Comparing to the previous EAP build, this one mostly consolidates fixes and improvements for recently added features. The most notable usability improvement in this EAP build is the Simplified Variables View option for the variable explorer:
The “Simplified Variables View” option is enabled by default and hides all dunder variables, instances of function, classobj and module under a separate group named “Special Variables”. Additionally, if an IPython-powered interpreter is used in the debug mode, all the utility IPython variables are moved to this group as well. Should you want to disable this behaviour, you can turn off the option in tool window settings (the blue gear icon on the screenshot).
The list of all bug fixes and improvements for this build can be found in the Release Notes.
We encourage you to give PyCharm 2016.3 EAP 163.6512 a try before its official release. Please change the updates channel to “Early Access Program” in the updates settings (Help|Check for updates…) to get the patch update from the last PyCharm 2016.3 EAP build 163.6110 or download the full installer for your platform. Please report any bugs and feature request to our issue tracker.
