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

The release candidate (RC) is not an early access program (EAP) build, and does not bundle an EAP license. If you get PyCharm Professional Edition RC, you will either need a currently active PyCharm subscription, or you will receive a 30-day free trial.

*Due to a technical problem no patches are available in this release. If you are interested in trying PyCharm 2020.2 RC you should download the full installer.
