Early Access Program News

New CLion 1.2 EAP (build 142.5047.10) is here

Welcome our new CLion 1.2 Early Access Program build. As usual download it from our site or get a patch update, in case you are using previous EAP build.

Debugger improvements
References are now displayed correctly during debug:
references_debugger
In case you are using GDB in CLion, please, note that evaluation of rvalue references is not yet supported by GDB itself.

Correct rendering for arrays of wide/unicode characters for GDB was introduced:
debug_array
LLDB case in still in development since char16_t and char32_t arrays are not handled correctly (CPP-4587).

Git Branch Operations from VCS Log Viewer
One of the previous EAP builds introduced an opportunity to access Git branch operations related to a particular change right from the context menu in the VCS Log Viewer. With this build it includes Rebase action as well:
rebase_git_branch

Other changes

  • Incorrect warning about ‘Value escapes the local scope’ was fixed (CPP-807).
  • Configured build output directories are excluded from the project scope immediately, now you don’t need to reload the project.
  • Visual Source Safe plugin is now available for CLion.
  • JavaScript debugger is now included into CLion.

Adjust for color deficiency
And last but not least, we are trying to make our tools friendlier for people with color blindness. With this in mind, the new feature available in the IntelliJ platform has come to CLion as well, and helps adjusting for color deficiency:
color_blindness
Currently, we support only the red-green color deficiency. If this is what you have, we really appreciate if you enable the corresponding option in Settings/Preferences | Appearance & Behaviour | Appearance | Adjust for color deficiency, and share how it works for you here in comments.

The full list of enhancements is available by the link.

Develop with pleasure,
The CLion Team
