CLion 2018.2 EAP: fixes to import project and GDB on macOS


Last week we started CLion 2018.2 EAP with lots of new goodies on board: Google Sanitizers, ability to recompile a single file, new Gradle C++ support, database plugin, and more. Today we are happy to announce a new 2018.2 EAP build (182.2574.4).

We would like to remind you that no license is required for CLion 2018.2 EAP builds. These builds are free to use but expire within 30 days of the build date. You can download a fresh build from our site or install it via a patch-update in case you use the previous EAP build.

This build includes the following fixes and enhancements:

  • If you use Import Project from existing sources functionality, but there is a CMake or Gradle project in this directory, CLion now suggests you to open this CMake/Gradle project. Otherwise you still can select an option to import it as a completely new CMake project:
  • Bundled CMake version was updated to 3.11.2.
  • If you experience issues with GDB on macOS (both bundled or custom), enable `cidr.debugger.gdb.workaround.macOS.startupWithShell` option in Registry (use Help | Find Action and type Registry) to improve the behaviour (mind, it’s not equivalent to simply setting `set startup-with-shell off` in your .gdbinit script).
  • Performance improvement: a fix for UI freezes in case of breadcrumbs usage.

Full release notes are available by the link.

    The release notes in the Wiki seem to be incomplete. The YouTrack query will show a lot more CPP entries.


    It’s also curious there are no PY entries this time. Another giveaway is the fixes mentioned in the blog post not being listed at all.

      Release notes are built automatically. So sometimes issues are missing, sorry for that.
