If you’re new to the EAP process, we encourage you to read our introductory blog post. It offers valuable insights into the program and explains why your participation is integral.

Join us in the coming weeks to explore the new features in PyCharm, test them out, and provide feedback on the new additions. Your engagement is what helps us shape the evolution of PyCharm.


New Graph OptionsFirst Parent and No Merges

Git has a useful option for viewing the history of changes in a branch: –first-parent. Use it with the git log command. This option simplifies the log by hiding individual commits that came with the merge, making it easier to track changes. 

We’ve also added filtering with the –no merges command, which displays the history without any merge commits. 

Both options can be selected under the Graph Options button in the Git tool window.

And that wraps up the first week! To see all the changes in this EAP build, check out the full release notes.

Keep an eye on our blog for weekly updates leading up to the major release. Your feedback is incredibly important to us, so please share your thoughts on the new features. You can leave a comment under his blog post or contact our team on X (formerly Twitter). If you encounter any bugs in this build, please report them through our issue tracker.
