Today we’re making the second release candidate for PyCharm 2018.2 available on our website. We’ve only made one small fix to how usage statistics are collected.
Usage statistics collection in PyCharm is opt-in and completely voluntary. It greatly helps us to see which functionality in PyCharm actually gets used, and which areas should receive the most attention for new features. To all users who opt-in: thank you very much!
See the blog post of the previous RC to read what’s new since the last EAP.
If you’re on Ubuntu 16.04 or later, you can use snap to get PyCharm RC versions, and stay up to date. You can find the installation instructions on our website.
The release candidate (RC) is not an early access program (EAP) build, and does not bundle an EAP license. If you get PyCharm Professional Edition RC, you will either need a currently active PyCharm subscription, or you will receive a 30-day free trial.
