Early Access Program Releases

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.
