CLion 2017.2 RC: C++ type casts in quick-fixes


CLion 2017.2 release is coming closer and today we are glad to announce Release Candidate build (172.3317.14).

C++ cast operators

CLion is able to indicate situations when user is missing a type cast. As a quick-fix (Alt+Enter), CLion suggested a C style cast previously. Now CLion suggests C++ type casts: static_cast, dynamic_cast, reinterpret_cast, const_cast:


If there is no single valid C++ style cast operator, the C style cast will be used. And if you want CLion to permanently use C style cast operators, simply switch off the setting in Settings/Preferences | Editor | Code Style | C/C++ | Code Generation | C++:


Besides, a couple of false positives code analysis checks were fixed: CPP-989 and CPP-3111.
