Early Access Program Releases

New in This Version

Variable Viewer for Jupyter Notebooks

Notebooks Variable

Last week we’ve introduced our new Jupyter Notebooks support, that allows you to directly edit and run .ipynb files from PyCharm. This week, we’re adding some more functionality.

Have you ever lost track of the state of your Jupyter Notebook as you’re working with it? We’ve now added a variables viewer to our new Jupyter Notebook support, so you can easily see what’s going on.

Interpreter Indicator

Interpreter Chooser

Are you in the process of migrating to a new version of a framework, or even a new version of Python? PyCharm now makes it even easier to switch between interpreters. Just choose it right from the status bar. If you prefer to keep your hands on your keyboard, use Ctrl+Shift+A to find action, and look for ‘Switch Python interpreter’.

Further Improvements


Download this EAP from our website. Alternatively, you can use the JetBrains Toolbox App to stay up to date throughout the entire EAP.

With PyCharm 2019.1 we’re moving to a new runtime environment: this EAP build already bundles the brand new JetBrains Runtime Environment (a customized version of JRE 11). Unfortunately, since this build uses the brand-new platform, the patch-update from previous versions is not available this time. Please use the full installation method instead.

If you tried 2019.1 EAP 3 or an earlier EAP of 2019.1: you may get an error about “MaxJavaStackTraceDepth=-1” when you start the IDE. If you get it, please remove that line from the custom JVM options. This is an incompatibility between the old JRE and the new one, and we apologize for any inconvenience.

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 2019.1 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 2019.1 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.
