A few days ago we published the first bug-fix update (2019.1.1) for the recently released CLion 2019.1. Thanks to our vigilant users, we’ve learned quickly that this build is affected by a very unpleasant freeze on IDE start when several projects are opened (CPP-16039, OC-18440). The IDE fails to recover in that case, unfortunately.
We are sincerely sorry for this and apologize for any inconvenience it might have caused. We’ve analyzed the source of the issue and will do our best to prevent such situations in the future.
If you are using v2019.1 (and especially 2019.1.1), we recommend that you update to the newest 2019.1.2 build, which is now publicly available. Download it from our website, via the Toolbox App, or via snap (for Ubuntu). A patch-update will be available shortly.
