Early Access Program Releases

PyCharm 2018.1 EAP 9

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

New in PyCharm

Flask Run Configuration

Flask Run Configuration

If you’ve been using a recent version of Flask, you may have already used the `flask run` commands to start your development server. PyCharm now comes with a special run configuration type to make use of Flask’s new functionality. Try it now!

Further Improvements

  • In the previous EAP, in some cases, the sudo password was asked upon creation of a new virtualenv. This bug has been resolved.
  • Various improvements to the ‘Add type hint’ intentions. To have PyCharm suggest a type hint, just put your cursor on a variable, press Alt+Enter, and choose one of the options.
  • The scroll behavior in the built-in terminal (Alt+F12) has been improved.
  • Read more about new features 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.

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.
