We are now approaching the final steps towards the PyCharm 5 release. So today we’ve published the PyCharm 5 Release Candidate.
PyCharm 5 Release Candidate includes mostly a consolidation of bug fixes as compared to the previous PyCharm 5 Beta build. For the detailed list of notable changes and improvements in this build, please check the Release Notes.
You can download the build or upgrade from within the IDE (from previous PyCharm 5 EAP builds only) without a full re-installation using the patch-based upgrade. Just make sure you’ve selected the EAP or Beta Releases channel in the update settings.
We hope that there will be no major bugs, however, should you encounter any problems, please report them to YouTrack – we’ll still have a bit of time to fix stuff before the final release.
Stay tuned for a PyCharm 5 release announcement, follow us on twitter, and develop with pleasure!
