Since CLion 1.0 first came out in April 2015, it has been growing steadily. Still, there are many areas for improvement, and we feel a responsibility – both to our current customers and those still waiting for some critical functionality to be added before they adopt CLion – to make progress in these areas. Hopefully, this release moves us one step closer to making good on that promise.
In this release, we’ve done our best to deliver some very important new capabilities for both groups. On the one hand, CLion comes with an experimental complementary clangd-base language engine and a set of important performance improvements. On the other, it introduces support for several new project models, which may open the door to a public project model API in the future.
