Early Access Program

PyCharm 2018.1 EAP 2

The second Early Access Program (EAP) version of PyCharm 2018.1 is now available. We’d like to invite you to download this version from our website.

New in PyCharm 2018.1 EAP 2

Improved Code Analysis for Python

We’ve been making steady improvements to the core of our product: Python code analysis. In this version, we improved the code intelligence for the `collections` package. This resolves issues where PyCharm would report an unexpected argument in the following code:

`d = collections.OrderedDict({‘name’: ‘value’})`

Python 3.7: Data Classes

Although the release of Python 3.7 may still seem far away, we’ve been working to make sure PyCharm will be ready when it happens. In this EAP we’ve added support for PEP 557 data classes.

You can read about further improvements in the release notes.


Download this EAP from our website. Alternatively, you can use the JetBrains Toolbox App to stay up to date throughout the entire EAP.

If you’re on Ubuntu 16.04 or later, you can use snap to get PyCharm EAP, and stay up to date. You can find the installation instructions on our website.

PyCharm 2018.1 is in development during the EAP phase, therefore not all new features are already available. More features will be added in the coming weeks. As PyCharm 2018.1 is pre-release software, it is not as stable as the release versions. Furthermore, we may decide to change and/or drop certain features as the EAP progresses.

All EAP versions will ship with a built-in EAP license, which means that these versions are free to use for 30 days after the day that they are built. As EAPs are released weekly, you’ll be able to use PyCharm Professional Edition EAP for free for the duration of the EAP program, as long as you upgrade at least once every 30 days.

    The “Interested?” section does not seem to have been updated for EAP 2? (It points to EAP 1)

    Also, the RSS feed of the blog has been extremely unreliable from Firefox for a few weeks. I would be grateful if you could fix that. I use Firefox “live bookmark” to check it every morning and it says “failed to load” 9 days out of 10.

      Thank you very much for letting me know about the link, I’ve fixed it. Thanks as well for letting us know about the RSS feed, I’ll ask the web team to look into it!
