CLion 2017.3 EAP: LLDB 5.0 and VCS changes

Hi,

This week’s CLion 2017.3 EAP build (173.3302.18) is now available!

Download CLion 2017.3 EAP

The highlights of the changes include:

  • Debugger
    • Bundled LLDB was updated to 5.0
      Note, this doesn’t work on CentOS 6.8 now (but will be fixed in the next EAP).
    • Bundled GDB was updated to 8.0.1
  • VCS improvements
    • If you use Tasks & Contexts to manage your tasks, you’ll be glad to know that you can now shelve changes related to your current task when starting a new task. Unshelve the changes when you switch back.
    • When switching between branches, the IDE preserves your workspace and automatically restores it when necessary.
    • It’s now possible to rename changelists from the Shelf tab of the VCS tool window or drag-and-drop a changelist from the Local Changes tab to the Shelf tab and back.
    • When committing git patches from the IDE, the IDE reads the author and commit details provided by git patches.
    • Find more details and samples in the IntelliJ IDEA’s blog.

Full release notes can be found here.
