PyCharm is the first JetBrains IDE to ship with the new JDK 11. This brings us improved performance and better rendering for our Jupyter Notebooks. Unfortunately, it also means that we ran into a couple of teething issues with the new JDK.
New in this Version
AltGr works correctly
As those of you who are using keymaps that require the AltGr key to type various characters have kindly let us know, this ability was broken in PyCharm 2019.1. We’re happy to announce that this was fixed in this version.
- Previously, Python 3.8 pre-release interpreters were detected as Python 3.7, they’re now correctly identified as Python 3.8
- Various issues related to Conda environments have been fixed
Getting the New Version
The release candidate (RC) is not an early access program (EAP) build, and does not bundle an EAP license. If you get the PyCharm Professional Edition RC, you will either need a currently active PyCharm subscription, or you will receive a 30-day free trial.
