PyCharm 2016.3 Release Candidate

We are happy to announce the availability of PyCharm 2016.3 Release Candidate. We are approaching the release of 2016’s third major PyCharm update, and it’s available for preview now. Download it now from the preview page.

Since the previous public preview we’ve fixed several bugs: details in the release notes.

If you haven’t seen our public preview yet, check out the preview page to learn about the features included in the new version. Some highlights:

  • Better Django support
  • Improved Python console
  • Enhanced version control integration
  • And much more

If you still have a perpetual license for an earlier version of PyCharm, we have a special offer for you! Don’t miss out on these new features: switch to a subscription and get 40% off forever. This offer is valid until the end of the year. Switch now in the JetBrains store.

Although we do our best to make sure that release candidates work well, if you experience any issues please report them on our issue tracker. Of course new feature requests are welcome there as well!

    Load JetBrains markdown plugin, restart, hangs. Reported several times during early release, still happening with this one.

      I’m using the JetBrains Markdown plugin as well, and it loads fine for me in 2016.3 released version. Could you update PyCharm? If that doesn’t work, maybe reinstall the Markdown plugin? And if the problem persists: please create a ticket on https://youtrack.jetbrains.com/issues/PY
