JDK 7?

I tried building JDK7, but PyCharm failed to run (first, it wasn't happy with OpenJDK, then it refused completely to use anything other than 1.5 or 1.6).  This wasn't a problem with the JDK - it was PyCharm itself checking the version and refusing via a pop-up.

So why do you check the upper bound of versions, and is their any way to disable the check?

The reason I ask is that I am checking out PyCharm and was interested in seeing if the font support improves with 7 (on Linux, you should see more fonts, "for free").

Cheers,

Andrew

Hello andrew,

The upper bounds check is there because we don't test PyCharm with beta versions

of the JDK, and do not want our users to blame PyCharm for problems which

are in fact caused by the JDK itself.

The EAP builds of PyCharm 1.5 allow running under JDK 7. See http://blogs.jetbrains.com/pycharm/

for more information on EAP.

OK, thanks.

For what it's worth, I tried the EA and couldn't see any new fonts.
