CLion 2017.2 EAP: CMake 3.8, code analysis fixes, and more
It’s been a while since we’ve started CLion 2017.2 Early Access Program. We’d like to thank those who has already given it a try and shared the feedback on the newly added Clang-Tidy integration.
This new EAP build (172.2103.9) comes with a set of fixes and improvements, as well as IntelliJ-platform wide enhancements.
CLion checks the configured toolchain by compiling a simple program and providing you with the results under Preferences/Settings | Build, Execution, Deployment | Toolchains. CLion now shows the diagnostic for the cases when errors happen. Click error label to open CMake Errors window:
Besides, CMake 3.8 was bundled into CLion.
Code analysis improvements
This build includes a couple of fixes for various code analysis false-positives:
- Error in analysis of full specializations from variadic templates (CPP-7313)
- Incorrect analysis of function that takes parameter pack arguments and non-template arguments (CPP-7336)
- Incorrect “Call to … is ambiguous” for member function vs. function in foreign namespace (CPP-9240)
Find in Path enhancements
In CLion 2017.1 a compact popup window with immediate preview was implemented for Find in Path. Now it has a left gutter, where you can see navigation icons and local change markers:
There were some requests to keep this popup window visible, even after the user switch focus back to the editor. So now to close the popup you have to press
Better HiDPI support on Windows
Instead of scaling IDE’s UI according to the global settings (primary display), CLion now provides each display with its own scale factor. This is done for Windows, Linux support is coming. Also font settings are adjusted automatically based on the display resolution.
Full release notes are available here.
