Posted on by Anastasia Kazakova

Hi,

Welcome the 2nd release candidate (build 181.4203.505) for CLion 2018.1! We’re getting really close to the release day and we’re looking forward to hearing your feedback. Share it here in comments or in our tracker.

Please note that to use CLion 2018.1 RC2 you need to have an active subscription (or start a 30-day evaluation period).

Download CLion 2018.1 RC2

This build brings a few improvements to the debugger:

  • When MinGW/MinGW-w64 toolchain is selected in CLion on Windows, you can now set a custom debugger and debug with it.
  • A fix to a regression with the system GDB not suggested for the newly created toolchain.
  • A few other GDB related fixes.

Note, that on macOS bundled GDB version is 8.0.1, while on Linux and Windows it’s v8.1. Bundled GDB is built with multiarch support in CLion 2018.1, which means no need to recompile it if you, for example, would like to remote debug from macOS to Linux.

Full release notes are available by the link.

    In this RC hangs happen when running/debugging/building. The whole IDE just hangs up to 10-15 seconds then resumes to work.

      Could you please collect thread dumps (they should be generated automatically when IDE freezes and located in the log directory Help | Show Logs) and share with us?

      • Kirill Sapozhnikov says:

        March 23, 2018

        These are all thread dumps for current version. It contains not only described issue, but also switching source/header and maybe some other. Do you need more specific info? If yes, I can create issue on youtrack when the next hang happens

            Did it started with the latest RC only?

            Looks like it.

            P.S. Somehow reply isn’t available under your comment

    Hi,

    I’d like to ask if you can include Lua under Clion’s other projects, like with IntelliJ IDEA (https://ibb.co/jEceqS to https://ibb.co/fmFzqS). If not possible, please enlighten me why not.

    • Anton Makeev says:

      Lua is a third-party plugin; we’ll ask the author to support it.

      • Denis Marinov says:

        March 29, 2018

        Thank you! It would be great if you can create plain Lua projects in Clion, rather than embedding it in C/C++ code.

    In two last RCs I’ve noticed dramatic increase of CPU usage. CPU utilization almost never drops below 50%, so I expect increased paycheck from my electricity supplier. Eventually CPU overheats and I got throttled by mobo. It was not like in earlier EAP builds. Do you plan to fix it by final release? Or I should probably consider buying liquid cooling for my PC?

    • Anastasia Kazakova says:

      March 28, 2018

      Have you tried Invalidate Indexes and Restart? If yes, have you shared the CPU snapshot with us?

      • Roman says:

        March 28, 2018

        I’ve tried invalidating indexes. At first sight it helped, but when I start editing files cpu usage increased again. I’ve uploaded snapshot to https://uploads.services.jetbrains.com/ CL-181.4203.505_ripopov_28.03.2018_07.45.31.zip

    Do not release it without fixing https://youtrack.jetbrains.com/issue/CPP-9361
    You guys are releasing new versions and adding features without fixing the performance issues. This is not good guys, that issue has been open for more than a year and it makes clion unusealble. dont ask for thread dumps coz you already have enough.

    • Anastasia Kazakova says:

      March 28, 2018

      This ticket is in development. So most likely will come to the 2018.2.
      This release will fix many performance issues, including freezes on typing in many cases. Other fixes will come later in the updates and next release. We spend quite a lot of resources now on freezes fixing.
