Early Access Program Releases

PyCharm 2020.1 Beta 2

PyCharm is approaching its release, and this beta is yet another waypoint we’re passing. The new Beta version of PyCharm can now be downloaded from our website.

Improved in PyCharm

  • We’ve improved our code completion a little: in some cases, we’d suggest a symbol from the `typing` package, rather than the `collections` package. In most cases, you’d like to actually use the collection, and not just add a type annotation, so we’ve ordered them in the way they’re used.
  • Do you think `Literal[“rw”, “wb”, “ab”]` looks clearer than `Union[Literal["rb"], Literal["wb"], Literal["ab]]`?  If so, there’s good news: PyCharm now agrees!
  • A bug was causing the `manage.py` prompt for Django to show up in the wrong place, and we’ve now resolved it. Django support is available only in PyCharm Professional Edition. If you don’t have PyCharm Professional yet, this is a great moment to get it. Until Monday, you can get a 1-year PyCharm license for 30% off, and we’ll donate the full amount to the Django Software Foundation.
  • There is all this and more. You can find the details in the release notes.
