CLion 2017.3 EAP: Boost.Test support

Hi,

Welcome our new CLion 2017.3 EAP, build 173.2696.23!

In late 2016 and early 2017 we polled over 5,000 developers to identify the State of Developer Ecosystem. This covered C and C++ development and showed many interesting results.

Among other questions we’ve asked about unit testing framework used by the respondents on a regular basis. For C language the top three unit test frameworks are: Google Test (37%), Boost.Test (8%), CppUnit (8%). For C++ – Google Test (45%), Boost.Test (26%), CppUnit (11%).

unit_test_cpp

CLion already supports Google Test and Catch unit test frameworks. And now it comes with the Boost.Test support! The support includes:

  • Special Boost.Test Run/Debug configurations
  • Built-in test runner with the progress bar and a tree view of all the tests running
  • Ability to re-run failed tests, export test results, open previously saved results
  • Ability to navigate to the source code of a particular test
  • Gutter icons to Run/Debug unit tests and show the status of the tests

modernize

Besides, we’ve eliminated false warning for MSVC specific pragmas (CPP-9549).

Full release notes are available by the link.
