Early Access Program Releases

PyCharm 2018.1 EAP 7

This week’s EAP version is now available: get it now from our website.

New in This Version

JavaScript package.json Version Inspection

EAP 7 - JS Package JSON version check

PyCharm has had an inspection to verify that the installed version of a pip package matches your specified version for a long time already. This functionality is now also coming to JavaScript. PyCharm Professional Edition bundles all features of WebStorm, JetBrains’ JavaScript IDE. JavaScript support is not available in PyCharm Community Edition.

Further Improvements

  • Various Python code inspection improvements: a false positive when calling `super(**kwargs)` has been fixed, imports from python files with a similarly named directory now work correctly, and more
  • The startup message of the Python interpreter is now folded when using the ‘Show command line afterwards’ option of run configurations
  • And more: read the release notes for details


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.
