PyCharm 2017.3.1 Released with Small Improvements

PyCharm IDE

The first update for PyCharm 2017.3 was released a few days ago with a couple of fixes and small improvements.

Changes in PyCharm 2017.3.1 includes:

  • Several issues with running Python modules (-m) were resolved: running modules remotely, showing command line after running
  • Further issues with running code over SSH were resolved: they can now connect to IPv6 hosts from macOS, don’t misinterpret ProxyCommand: none, and correctly parse the HostKeyAlgorithms option (Connecting to a Python interpreter over SSH is only supported in PyCharm Professional Edition)
  • Code insight for SQLAlchemy was improved, the issue with ‘incorrect call arguments’ has been fixed.
  • And more, see the release notes for details

How to Install PyCharm 2017.3.1 in Ubuntu:

You can easily run the new release in Ubuntu via either:

method 1: official Linux binaries. NON-INSTALL version, just extract and run executable file to launch the IDE:

[ac-button style=”flat” size=”large” url=”” target=”_blank”]Download PyCharm Linux binary[/ac-button]

method 2: or install the Snap package. WELL integrated with Ubuntu. Support for Ubuntu 16.04 and higher:

Simply open terminal via Ctrl+Alt+T or by searching for ‘terminal’ from app launcher. When it opens, run command:

sudo snap install pycharm-community --classic

For sudo prompts, input your password (no visual feedback while typing) when it asks and hit Enter.

For professional edition, run following command instead:

sudo snap install pycharm-professional --classic

Once installed, launch the IDE from your application launcher and enjoy!


To remove the snap packages, either use Ubuntu Software or run command in terminal:

sudo snap remove pycharm-community pycharm-professional
