CLion 2017.3 EAP: LLDB 5.0 and VCS changes

Posted on by Anastasia Kazakova

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.

    What are the plans for this issue?

      Unfortunately, there is no clear estimation, while we keep an eye on it. Does the workaround suggested in comments work for you?

        It would work for me individually, but not great for the whole team so I’m just staying with 2017.2.1.
