Early Access Program

PyCharm 2020.1 EAP 6

We have a new Early Access Program (EAP) version of PyCharm that can be now downloaded from our website.

In PyCharm 2020.1 EAP 6, we have been working out some of the kinks to make this release cleaner and more reliable for all our PyCharm users.

Highlights and Fixes

  • Debugging your Python code is essential. So we have made sure to resolve the issue that found users not being able to use step over just after they step into, in the debugger.
  • The issue with breakpoints not being hit in files that were named protocol.py. has been fixed.
  • The Docker Compose interpreter failed in the “Updating skeleton” phase if the docker container was using a non-root user. This has been resolved, so PyCharm can now build skeletons for docker interpreter when the user doesn’t have permissions.
  • PyCharm Professional Edition users can now use the new feature introduced by the DataGrip team: Amazon Redshift stored procedures support.
  • From our WebStorm team for users of Vue, initial support for composition API has been added.
  • Plus many other fixes from across the IntelliJ Platform that will make PyCharm 2020.1 that much nicer to work with. You can find the details in the release notes.


Download this EAP from our website. Alternatively, you can use the JetBrains Toolbox App to stay up to date throughout the entire EAP.
If you’re on Ubuntu 16.04 or later, you can use snap to get PyCharm EAP and stay up to date. You can find the installation instructions on our website.

    PyCharm 2.0.4 ‘s project view of the Introduction to Python tutorial included names on the project, folder (lesson), and files (tasks). PyCharm 3.0 has the outer folder name for the Project and then just “Lesson 1” and “Task 1” and “Task 2”.

    Something happened to the display of these lessons in the change from 2.0.4 to 3.0? That’s troublesome because I made screen shots using the named lessons and tasks, etc. And now they’re gone.

      Hard to say without screenshots. Could you please open the tech support ticket here jb.gg/pycharm-support ?
      Generally you still should see the lesson and task names. Like on the last screenshot here https://www.jetbrains.com/pycharm-edu/whatsnew/. Maybe somethign went wrong converting a course created with 2.0.4 to 3.0

    I’m trying to learn php and there is this one guy on youtube that suggested me to learn python instead. Is this totally free?

      Python is a multi-use all purpose programming language as opposite to php, which is being used for web only. Python has clearer syntax and is easy to learn. Python is recommended as a first language by many educational institutions.

    Is it possible to import/install pygame into Pycharm Edu?
    I can’t find a place to import pygame files. When i download pygame 1.9 and install it, it says it needs python to be installed. I’m thinking that Pycharm Edu (3.0.1) is running like a black box, so my mac doesnt know its there?

    how can i get around this? without pygame, i’m not able to develop using game related functions.

    I have installed PyCharm Edu version 3.5.1. on windows 10 (x64).
    After selecting “Introduction to Python” a small window pops up titled: error in course creation. It tells me: Some problems occurred while creating the course.
    Does anybody know what this means ? Or even better, a way to fix this ?

    After the message there is a huge delay (minutes). Then I get a window with a grey background with 3 lines:
    Navigate to the next answer placeholder Ctrl+Enter
    Vavigate between answer placeholders /
    Navigate between tasks /

    Since I have never used PyCharm this does not make any sense to me.

    I have seen the video tutorial but the behaviour is completely different.
