New in PyCharm

  • Setup.py support has been improved, both `test_require` and `install_requires` handling have been fixed
  • Overloads (defined with `typing.overload`) are now copied to the subclass when overriding a method that defines them.
  • SQL code style improvements: MySQL line comments are now correctly identified, and it’s now possible to right-align statements on the second word.
  • And more: read the release notes here

If you haven’t tried it yet: PyCharm 2018.2 comes with support for Pipenv. This EAP already allows you to manage your requirements with a Pipfile, try it now!


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 2018.2 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 2018.2 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.
