Early Access Program Releases

PyCharm 2019.2 EAP 1

We’re happy to announce that the first Early Access Program (EAP) version of PyCharm 2019.2 is now available for download on our website.

New in PyCharm

Styling Improvements

EAP 1 - Restyle

We know that it’s important for your IDE to look good, so we’ve sharpened up the looks of the IDE a little bit, especially on Windows.

Code Highlighting in Other Languages

EAP 1 - TextMate

Do you have some files in your project in another language than Python? PyCharm will now highlight code for many popular languages out of the box. We’re using TextMate bundles to achieve this, and if you found that we missed a language, you can still add it manually by configuring the appropriate TextMate bundle in Settings | Editor | TextMate Bundles.

Of course, if you’re developing a C# application, you might also want to consider trying JetBrains Rider, our cross-platform .NET IDE.

Further Improvements

  • We’ve fixed an issue where we’d autocomplete symbols that are defined further down in the file. As Python interprets files in order, this would lead to runtime issues.
  • For more details on what’s new in this version, see the release notes
