This build brings:

  • Fixes for multiple code analysis false positives with Clang 5 (CPP-10694, CPP-10947).
  • Fixes for anonymous bit fields parsing (CPP-6665).
  • Anonymous structures (Microsoft extension) are now supported in parser.
  • Small usability improvements of Import Project functionality (CPP-11840).

Meanwhile, if you are developing in Fortran or Rust, check the corresponding plugins available for CLion 2018.1 EAP. Debugger is available for both languages, and in Rust benefit from Cargo support (instead of using CMake).

    Hello, Anastasia

    Could you pay attention to bug with Pimpl? It’s really annoying when IDE can’t resolve pointer to forward declared struct.

    Cheers

  2. Yaroslav says:

    Since the last EAP (and also this RC) JS support is too buggy in CLion.
    Tones of exception during debugging sessions (JSDebug).
    I am not sure how WEB plugin is synchronized with CLion but current state definitely is not production ready.

    Hello, if I’m on stable 2017.4, should I update on this RC (i.e. is it enough stable?) to start using new features (WSL related ones) or should I wait for the stable release (what’s the release window in this last case) ?

    • Anastasia Kazakova says:

      Release Candidate is a pre-release build, so is more or less stable, though some issues are still possible. The release will be published in a couple of weeks. Stay tuned.

    Thanks for the release!

    Now, whining.
    The out-of-the-blue 100% CPU usage is a bummer. I’m lucky I have 700% more.
    I did create an issue and uploaded several CPU dumps there: CPP-12217.
    And my favorite stress test, Battle for Wesnoth sources, still gives a ton of false positives: CPP-11097

    • Anastasia Kazakova says:

      We have a huge overhaul there, moving forward for a couple of releases. Hope to improve the IDE performance soon.

      • Kirill Sapozhnikov says:

        I hope improving performance will make working with libraries like boost comfortable. Now it’s painful due to long code resolving.

        • Anastasia Kazakova says:

          Boost is a hard library for IDEs indeed. Do you experience problems when typing or calling some specific actions?

          • Kirill Sapozhnikov says:

            Well, it feels like there are problems with everything. Syntax highlighting (long), symbols resolving(even longer), auto completion (incredibly long or even doesn’t work).
            It all gets worse the more files in project use Boost. BTW, same with Eigen.

          • Kirill Sapozhnikov says:

            QtCreator works fine with Boost.

          • Kirill Sapozhnikov says:

            And MS Code
