Option to show tool window names in the side toolbars

Starting with PyCharm 2024.1 EAP 3, it is now possible to display tool window names on side toolbars in the new UI. Simply right-click on the toolbar to access the context menu and choose Show Tool Window Names, or enable this option via Settings / Preferences | Appearance & Behavior | Appearance | Tool Windows. It’s also possible to tailor the width of the toolbar by dragging its edge.

Git tab removed from the Search Everywhere dialog

After analyzing the usage statistics, we’ve removed the Git tab from the Search Everywhere dialog by default. If you want to bring it back, you can do so via the Show Git tab in Search Everywhere checkbox in Settings / Preferences | Advanced Settings | Version Control. Git.

That’s it for this week. For a full list of changes, please refer to the release notes.
