Templates in Generate actions

In CLion 2017.3 Generate Definition started respecting function templates. With this update Generate function from usage respects template parameters:

Catch 2

Special icons in the left gutter to run/debug tests appeared in CLion 2017.3. Besides, these icons also report the status of the tests: success or failure. This works for Google Test, Boost.Test and Catch frameworks. And now they are shown for Catch 2, a recently released version of Catch framework.

Other improvements

This build also addresses the following issues:

  • CMake
    • CLion now reports the CMake build progress and shows the stop button, so you can interrupt the CMake build of your project at any time.
    • CLion now bundles CMake 3.9.6
  • C++ language support
    This build mostly addresses regressions appeared after huge overhauls in C++ parser:
    • False “Initializer string is too long for array of chars” error when concatenating string literals (CPP-10787).
    • False “Function … was redefined” error for template function specialization definition, when located in the same file as declaration (CPP-11206).
    • False “No matching constructor” error when template class inherits a constructor (CPP-11292).

Full release notes are here.
