- Multiline TODOs support.
- Great usability improvements for search everywhere feature.

Due to the fact that pycharm is available as a snap package, installing it on Ubuntu 18.10 Cosmic Cuttlefish, Ubuntu 18.04 Bionic Beaver, Linux Mint, Elementary OS and other Ubuntu derivative systems is easy. All you need to do is install snap (if you don’t have it already) and install the pycharm-community snap package:
$ sudo apt install snapd snapd-xdg-open
$ sudo snap install pycharm-community --classic
Optional, to remove pycharm-community, do:
$ sudo snap remove pycharm-community
