JetBrains C++ IDE: News, Plans and More

A while ago we announced that we were working on a cross-platform C++ IDE, and most of you have already seen the features list for it. Since then we have received a number of questions about this mysterious IDE, what it will support and when you will finally be able to see it. Well, we’ve got some news for you!

No, we don’t have specific release dates or any public early access builds at this point. But we can give the first private preview builds to a group of people to play with, once we have them naturally. Your feedback and comments will greatly help us to roll out the new IDE quicker, and you can be one of the first ones to try it.

Sounds intriguing? If you do feel like being an early bird, simply fill out this form to subscribe. Please take a moment to answer the questions about the project(s) you’re involved with, as it will help us pick the first group of lucky candidates and get a better idea of what you may need from a C++ IDE in the future.

Stay tuned for updates!

Yours truly,
The AppCode Team

UI Designer plugin for AppCode is available in early preview

! Update: AppCode 3 released with an integrated UI Designer !

We have exciting news for all Objective-C developers who use AppCode as their IDE of choice—for some time we’ve been working on one of the most desired features: UI Designer.

Today we are going to share with you the first early preview of it. For now, it is available as a plugin which you can already download and play with. The work is still in progress, and at the moment there are some limitations, for instance, plugin only supports .xib format for iOS platform from Xcode 3 up to Xcode 4.6. Support for .xib format for iOS platform from Xcode 5, .xib format for OS X and .storyboards is on its way.
Now, here’s a number of things that you can already do with the plugin:

  • Adding new component to Canvas or Component Tree with one click.
  • Move, Delete, Copy and Paste operations within Canvas and Component Tree.
  • Powerful Properties Editor allows editing any number of selected components.
  • Component Tree, which shows the hierarchy of components.
  • Component Palette with all the components supported by iOS SDK.
  • Creating/editing/deleting connections between components.
  • Creating outlet or action for a component in an Objective-C class that is specified for File Owner.
  • AutoLayout support.

Watch this short overview of AppCode UI Designer in action:

Installation instructions:

  • Update AppCode to 2.5.3.
  • Open Preferences | Plugins and click Browse repositories… button, then use Manage repositories… button to add the following custom plugin repository:
  • Find AppCode UI Designer plugin in the list and click Download and Install button
  • Restart AppCode.
  • Enjoy!

The plugin is still under construction, and we need your feedback on it. We encourage you to try the new UI Designer and tell us what you think via forums or tracker.

AppCode 2.5 Release Candidate

So guys,
the AppCode 2.5 is almost there, and here is the Release Candidate build with a number of fixes, including various performance optimizations.

The build is available here; since it’s a release candidate build, there is no patch-update from the previous EAP version.

And before the release rush begins, we’d like to step back for a moment to say how greatly we appreciate your suggestions and help in finding and fixing problems that we received during EAP. We hope the upcoming AppCode 2.5 will make development even more pleasant to you.

Till release!
