As you may know, PyCharm is a Python IDE, having some interesting functions like: code completion, error highlighting, customizable UI and key-bindings for VIM, VCS integrations or automated code refactorings and good navigation capabilities.
The latest version available is PyCharm 5.0.3, which has been recently released, coming with the below fixes:
- MS SQL: completion for routine parameters feature added
- a few fixes for Docker support
- fixes for integrated Debugger and Profiler
- a fix for minor performance issues
- a fix for Django project creation
- PyCharm hangs for several seconds when pasting text (via ctrl+v keyboard shortcut), seemingly randomly
- fixes for Docker: Container output sometimes gets truncated
- fix for Find, Replace, Find Usages, can hit enter to replace in find replace including Find in Path Directory dropdown makes it impossible to distinguish between long paths
- Preprocessor define change leads to reindexing
- Cyclic Expand Word feature gets stuck when hyphenated match exists
The latest version of PyCharm is available via some third party PPA, so installing the software on Ubuntu systems is not a difficult task.
All you need to do is add the PPA to your system, update the local repository index and install the pycharm package:
$ sudo apt-add-repository ppa:mystic-mirage/pycharm
$ sudo apt-get update
