C++ support

In this build we’ve fixed an incorrect ‘Can’t resolve constructor’ error that happened in some cases when using = ... statement was used. It now works correctly in CLion:

Besides, this EAP build addresses several regressions:

  • Incorrect Can’t access class error (CPP-11393)
  • Incorrect Incompatible types in initializer error in some cases (CPP-11407)
  • Failed resolve of the structure’s member in case of typedef before the declaration (CPP-12046) and some other cases (CPP-12082)

Google Test with MSVC

CLion integrates with Google Test, Boost.Test and Catch frameworks. In this EAP build we’ve fixed an issue with Google Test output not handled correctly in case the Microsoft Visual C++ compiler toolchain is used.

CMake 3.10

Bundled CMake was updated to v3.10. As a side effect, minimum supported Cygwin version was set to 2.8.

That’s it! Full release notes are available by the link.
