PyCharm 2020.1 Release Candidate

We’ve passed the final approach fix, and we’re now established on the glideslope for the PyCharm 2020.1 release. This week’s build brings a couple of bug fixes as we hope to take the release in for a smooth landing. Let us know how we’re doing by getting this version, if you run into any issues please leave us a ticket on YouTrack.

Improvements in this version

  • Creating a scientific project (pro only) would fail as a tool window was giving us trouble. This has been resolved.
  • Developing with pleasure means that keyboard navigation of forms should work as expected, we had an issue in the new SSH configuration screen (pro only), and this is now resolved.
  • PyCharm Professional Edition bundles all database features from JetBrains DataGrip, and they’ve made a couple of improvements that are available in this build: Microsoft SQL Server sparse columns are now supported, and AWS Redshift stored procedures should now have working introspection.
