Early Access Program Releases

PyCharm 2020.1 Beta

We have a new Beta version of PyCharm that can now be downloaded from our website.

This Beta brings us closer to the 2020.1 release: we’re working on polishing everything to get it ready, and this week’s version brings some great improvements.

New in PyCharm

Creating new Pyramid projects with Cookiecutter

Beta 1 - Pyramid Cookiecutter


Pyramid has adopted cookiecutter as the official way to create new projects. From this version onward, PyCharm will also use the official cookiecutter template to create Pyramid projects.

Further Improvements

  • We recently improved how stepping works in the Python debugger. Previously we had a separate ‘Smart step into’ option that allows you to which function call you’d like to step into if there are multiple function calls on the same line. Unfortunately, we had a small issue where in some cases we skipped a couple lines while stepping. This has now been fixed.
  • In PyCharm Professional Edition’s data view, we had an issue where if there were multiple columns, all values were implicitly converted to floats. We’ve resolved this problem.
  • There is all this and more. You can find the details in the release notes.
