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.

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

    I’d like to ask if you can include Lua under Clion’s other projects, like with IntelliJ IDEA ( to If not possible, please enlighten me why not.

    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?

    Do not release it without fixing
    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.

      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.
