Our PyCharm release is now ready! We’ve added some important fixes to make sure we provide you with the best tool we can, so be sure to update to the newest version! You can get it from within PyCharm (Help | Check for Updates), using JetBrains Toolbox, or by downloading the new version from our website.
In this version of PyCharm
- PyCharm will now always detect Git if it’s installed in the default directory on Windows, regardless of whether it’s on the PATH.
- There’s good news for people developing apps that need to use the camera or microphone on macOS Mojave or later. In order to use these, the OS needs you to give permission to the application. As PyCharm doesn’t use either the microphone or camera, applications that tried to get permission would automatically be blocked. We’ve now resolved this problem.
- SQL database users will be happy to hear we have fixed the issue with the freezes that occurred when autocompleting database table names in joins. Now you can again expect fast autocomplete results and work productively with your databases.
And many more small fixes, see our release notes for details.
Getting the New Version
You can update PyCharm by choosing Help | Check for Updates (or PyCharm | Check for Updates on macOS) in the IDE. PyCharm will be able to patch itself to the new version, there should no longer be a need to run the full installer.
If you’re on Ubuntu 16.04 or later, or any other Linux distribution that supports snap, you should not need to upgrade manually, you’ll automatically receive the new version.
