User experience 

Option to scale down the entire IDE

PyCharm 2023.1 introduced the ability to zoom in and out of the entire IDE, adjusting the size of all UI elements simultaneously. However, the initial scaling range was limited to between 100 and 200%. In PyCharm 2024.1 EAP 1, we have incorporated a new option allowing users to scale down the IDE to 90%, 80%, or 70%, offering an extended range of customization options. 

Django Structure tool window

This first build also brings multiple improvements to the recently introduced Django Structure tool window. Among other enhancements, there is now an action to register model admin classes.

That’s it for the first week! For the full list of changes in this EAP build, please read the release notes.

Stay tuned for more updates that will be covered in the blog every week until the major release date. We highly value your input, so be sure to provide your feedback on the new features.
