CLion 2017.3 EAP: toolchains on welcome wizard

Anastasia Kazakova


CLion 2017.3 EAP has recently started with many great things on board: dozens of language engine improvements, invert if refactoring, bundled GDB 8.0, gutter icons to run/debug unit tests, new toolchains configuration.

This new build (173.2290.13) comes with an ability to configure toolchains on CLion’s Welcome screen, which appears when you start the IDE for the first time and don’t have any settings to import from the previous version:


You can configure toolchains with various CMake versions, debuggers, MinGW, Cygwin or Microsoft Visual C++ environment (in case of Windows) here or change later in Settings/Preferences | Build, Execution, Deployment | Toolchains.

Full release notes are available here.

    Is this still an outstanding issue?
    IDEA-178869 JNA is broken on CentOS 6

    Is there a workaround? Maybe some package I need to install.
