Welcome to Early Access Program for JetBrains PyCharm


JetBrains PyCharm is a new Integrated Development Environment for programming using Python with the following key features:

  • Intelligent Editor: for Python with code completion, on-the-fly syntax and error highlighting and code inspections
  • Code Refactoring: including rename, introduce variable, introduce constant, pull up, push down and others
  • Web development with Django: with specific templates editing support, server launch from IDE and best in class support for HTML, CSS and JavaScript editing.
  • Project and Code Navigation: specialized project views, file structure views and quick jumping between files, classes, methods and usages
  • Error-Free Coding: on-the-fly code analysis, error highlighting and quick fixes
  • VCS Integrations: out-of-the-box support for Subversion, Perforce, Git, Mercurial and CVS with changelists and merge
  • Cross-platform: works on Windows, Mac OS X and Linux



What is Early Access Program (EAP)?

We at JetBrains believe that making tools for developers should greatly involve listening to developers. Our Early Access Programs let development community closely participate in discussions about product and influence development planning, from early stages onwards.
Early Access Program allows you to try pre-release versions of our software to evaluate features that will be added to the next release.

Be Warned


It is important to distinguish EAP from traditional pre-release software. Please note that the quality of EAP versions may at times be way below even usual beta standards.

  1. There are several things that I would like to see improved about EAP program.

    • Auto-update mechanism, this should work just like the one on release but use the EAP specific url to test for EAP releases.
    • A simple link from the home pages to EAP page, currently you have to browse 4-5 pages until you find the EAP download page
    • Have consistent names for EAP builds "Product EAP", without build name in the folder name. Why? This breaks shortcuts to the executables and you may end-up having several versions installed and running the old one instead of the latest one.
    • Have someone take a look at
      • EAP builds do support auto-update as long as you update from a build to the next one without skipping any builds.
      • A link at will be provided later.
      • We don't plan to remove the build number from the folder name.
      1. I found an important bug in 121.226 which is marked as fixed in 122. but this build is not visible on website nor in the update section.

        1. Which bug do you mean?
          The branch 122 is an internal development branch for the next version of PyCharm; we're not currently publishing any builds from that branch.

  2. EAP license from build 130.1058 has expired and PyCharm doesn't start anymore. Please upload the new EAP build.

    1. I see the release notes were updated minutes ago.  I am eagerly expecting a new set of binaries any minute :) 

  3. My PyCharm EAP PY-133.551, build PY-133.551 expired. Do you have an estimate on when we'll see a newer version?


    1. I must be nuts. I tried launching the 3.1 EAP again, and it launched just fine with no warning that it had expired. I must have launched version 3.0, tho I don't understand why I'd get an "expired" notice on the the released version 3.0.

      sorry for the noise.

      1. Hi Richard, good that it works fine now. Maybe you've launched a previous EAP version, namely 133.291?

        1. I searched my disk and FOUND the older PyCharm EAP. I could have sworn there wasn't another EAP version on my disk, but I was mistaken.

          Sheesh. Maybe I need to change my brand of coffee.

          Again, sorry for the noise. Love PyCharm!

  4. I'm using the Python plugin in IDEA. Where do I find EAP versions of the plugin for download? Also, recently when I updated IDEA, the Python plugin no longer worked properly, and I had to update it separately. This should not happen. IDEA's update mechanism should offer updates to the Python plugin.  All of these comments apply to the upcoming C++ plugin.

    1. Hi Dave, the latest problems with plugin update have been caused by a bug. Normally newer plugin version for IDEA EAPs should be available with auto-update mechanism.

      1. So, for every IDEA EAP release in future, there will be a Python plugin that works with it. Is that what you mean? I hope so!

  5. For some reason my shortcut to import modules isn't working anymore. For example I used to be able to put my cursor inside a module that hadn't been imported and hit `alt+enter and it would add the import at the top of the file (e.g. `from import foo`).

    1. Hi Brent, could you please file an issue in our tracker regarding this problem. Please provide an actual code snippet and your interpreter configuration there (the more relevant data to reproduce the problem, the better).

  6. I think pycharm-professional 142.5084 windows download link has no content. Could you check it?

    1. Hi Tatsuya, thanks for the report. Now the download should work as expected. 

      1. Thank you! I got it.

  7. I tried to install pycharm-community-143.24.exe but Windows Defender detects a trojan on it (Trojan:Win32/Repjexi):

    --- cut here ---

    file:C:\Program Files (x86)\JetBrains\PyCharm 143.24\bin\Uninstall.exe

    --- cut here ---

    I also tried to update via patch download and get the same report:

    --- cut here ---
    The following error occurred: Error code 0x80508023. The program could not find the malware and other potentially unwanted software on this computer.

    Category: Trojan

    Description: This program is dangerous and executes commands from an attacker.

    Recommended action: Remove this software immediately.

    1. Hi,

      this is a known issue. It's described here:

      The solution is to update your Windows 10 defender. It should eliminate the problem you have.
