PyCharm 2021.3 EAP #4

The fourth PyCharm 2021.3 EAP build is out! Please give it a try, and don’t forget to share your feedback on Twitter (by mentioning @pycharm) or by reporting issues to our tracker!


This is the last EAP build before the release, and our focus now is on fixing important bugs and improving the new features after carefully hearing your feedback. For the full list of fixes and improvements go to the download page and check the release notes.

Remote Development: JetBrains Gateway

PyCharm now supports a further enhanced form of remote development named JetBrains Gateway. This feature is still very much under development, and we hope to refine it over the course of the EAP process.

This new form of remote development allows PyCharm users to have a hosted form of PyCharm, taking advantage of the server’s CPU and RAM; developers will no longer be limited by the processing power of their own machines.

You can find instructions on how to get started with JetBrains Gateway on this page.

Bug Fixes and Improvements

  • Ability to set value for dictionary item during debug.
  • Fixed a bug that was causing a project structure to become broken when using a venv with a package installed as editable.
  • Ready to join the EAP?

    Some ground rules

    • EAP builds are free to use and expire 30 days after the build date.
    • You can install an EAP build side by side with your stable PyCharm version.
    • These builds are not fully tested and can be unstable.

    How to download

    You can download this EAP build 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 snaps to make sure you always have the latest PyCharm EAP build.
