PyCharm IDE 2020.1 Released with Interactive Rebasing

PyCharm IDE

PyCharm IDE 2020.1 was released a day ago as the first major release in 2020. The new version features interactive rebasing, smarter debugging, and JetBrains Mono font.

PyCharm 2020.1 release highlights:

  • Interactive Rebasing: Commits can get messy, which is why you need to be able to rebase your branch. Now, PyCharm allows you to do so visually and with unprecedented ease.
  • Smarter Debugging: PyCharm’s debugger now makes it easy to see what’s happening in the middle of a complex statement. When stepping in, the debugger will ask you exactly what part of the statement you want to investigate further.
  • JetBrains Mono: PyCharm helps you read your code by navigating your project effectively, and now also by presenting your code in a font designed specifically for it.
  • Django Template Imports: PyCharm Professional Edition makes life easy for web developers by offering code completion (and debugging) in Django templates. We’ve made a couple improvements on this front: auto import for custom tags and better completion.

How to Install PyCharm 2020.1 in Ubuntu:

Jetbrains offers official Snap package for Linux desktop, which runs in sandbox and always updated.

For Ubuntu 18.04 and higher, simply open Ubuntu Software, search for and install pycharm packages:

For those prefer native .deb package, keep an eye on the unofficial PPA though it’s not updated at the moment of writing.
