CLion 2019.2.1 Bug-fix Update


CLion 2019.2 was released just a few weeks ago, and now we are ready to give you the first bug-fix update. CLion 2019.2.1 (build 192.6262.62) is now available for download from our website, via the Toolbox App, or via snap (for Ubuntu). A patch update will be available shortly. If you haven’t updated to v2019.2 yet, now’s a good time to do so.


This update brings important fixes in several areas.

Fixes in the experimental debugger for MSVC

CLion v2019.2 introduced an experimental debugger for the Microsoft Visual C++ toolchain. Being experimental, it was launched with a list of known issues and limitations. In this update, we’ve fixed some of them:

  • Fixes for the callstacks:
    • Full support for call stacks on x64 systems, including information from exception handling tables.
    • Fixed function representation in call stack.
  • Fixes for stepping:
    • Support for Force Step into, which gets you into the Disassembly View (if the source code is not available).
    • Step over call from within the recursive function now works.
    • Stepping through exceptions now works (Step over call from within try with a throw block now goes to the corresponding catch block).
    • Performance improvements for stepping when variables are muted.
  • Fixes for threads:
    • Threads’ names in the list of threads are now available.
    • Threads are sorted by created time.
  • Fixes in rendering:
    • Fixed issues with rendering STL types (all containers from CPP-16661 now work).
    • Custom NatVis in STL container is now working (CPP-16675).
    • Custom NatVis loaded from the outside of the project directory is now working (CPP-16676).
  • Other fixes:
    • Watchpoints are now working (CPP-14936).
    • Exception breakpoints are now working (CPP-14564).

Other C++-related improvements

Unfortunately, in v2019.2 several inspection settings were not imported correctly when upgrading from 2019.1. This is now fixed.

We’ve also fixed a freeze on Go to Declaration (CPP-13969).

JBR update

With this bug-fix update, we have also updated both JetBrains Runtime 11 and JetBrains Runtime 8, on which CLion and other IntelliJ-based IDEs are built. The fixes covered the broken rendering of Fira Code fonts, IDE-managed HiDPI mode on Windows, the issue with the Ctrl+C shortcut in the integrated terminal on macOS, and a crash when WebView is used on RHEL Linux 7.3. For more details, see this blog post.
