Early Access Program Releases

PyCharm 2021.1 EAP 5 is Out!

We’ve addressed a long list of issues in this bug-fix release. Here’s just a few of the major fixes:

  • UX: The IDE no longer gets stuck when you cancel the process of opening (starting up) a project. [IDEA-239130]
  • Search Everywhere: The search now works without you having to clear the cache. [IDEA-262899]
  • Python console: Starting the console after closing it no longer creates several console instances. [PY-46500]
  • Code insight: PyCharm no longer suggests adding type hints to functions that already have them. [PY-31369]
  • CSS: Selectors created using the &_ suffix are now supported for CSS preprocessors. [WEB-35215]

For the full list, please read the release notes.
