PyCharm 2018.3 Release Candidate

PyCharm 2018.3 is almost ready to be released, and that’s why we’re happy to present the release candidate for PyCharm 2018.3. Download this version from our website

New in This Version

Multiline TODOs

Multiline Todos

If you like to put TODOs in your code to remember yourself (or your colleagues) to further improve a part of your code, you now have more space to do so. If you indent the line after the line with ‘TODO’ (or ‘FIXME’, or anything you configure in Settings | Editor | Todo) it’ll be treated as a continuation of the todo.

Further Improvements

  • Various Docker Compose fixes
  • An issue where PyCharm would freeze when using Ctrl-C in the Python console has been resolved
  • Debugging node.js code on WSL could in some cases result in an exception, this is now fixed
  • And more, read the release notes


Download the RC from our website. Alternatively, you can use the JetBrains Toolbox App.

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

The release candidate is not an EAP version, this means that you will either need to have an active PyCharm license, or you’ll receive a 30 day free trial for PyCharm Professional Edition. The community edition is free and open source as usual.
