CLion EAP: less bugs – more stable

Following our statistics more than 6.5K unique users are running latest CLion EAP every week and a lot of you are using it for the everyday development. That’s why we’ve got so many questions about the EAP build expiring this week, and we are not going to let you down – new build is coming today!

This EAP is mainly about the bug fixing. You can check the long list in our tracker.

Summarizing the most important changes:

  • Several fixes were introduced to enhance the performance of the editor. Check if you get the improvement and share the feedback with us.
  • Issues with arrays were fixed in this build: CLion now understands the array sizes better (CPP-1568) and thus array length checks work correctly; false ‘compound array initializer’ was fixed (CPP-347).
  • A couple of problems with type casting were addressed (CPP-1567, CPP-1571, CPP-975).
  • CPP-1195 – Parameter info working incorrectly for some cases.
  • CPP-1390 – Incorrect handling of variable’s initialization.
  • CPP-994 – Errors caused by unnamed parameters when performing Rename or Change Signature.
  • CPP-1282 – The regression came to second EAP unfortunately – Rename files in project wasn’t working. Fixed now, and sorry for the inconvenience.
  • A couple of exceptions and fatal failures were fixed in this build as well.

Latest build is available on our EAP page.
