CLion 2019.3 EAP: Fixes for CMake Generators, Disassembly, and More


A new CLion 2019.3 EAP (build 193.4778.13) is now available! Get it from our website, via the Toolbox App, or as a snap package (if you are using Ubuntu). A patch-update for anyone using the previous EAP build will be available shortly.


Generators in CMake

In the recent EAP build, we’ve added support for Ninja and other generators in CMake. We’ve had tons of valuable feedback and discovered cases we hadn’t tried on our side! It was great that, with your help, we were able to catch all these problems and we have worked hard over the week to fix the most annoying ones. Today’s build brings a few important fixes:

  • On Windows, an exception was caught that could prevent your project from correctly loading CMake and the project build (CPP-17728, CPP-17740).
  • For any generator which is not Makefiles (default) or Unix/MinGW/MSYS Makefiles, the custom make path in the Toolchains settings is ignored now. This was preventing Ninja from working correctly (CPP-17749). Later, we plan to allow users to specify their custom build tool in this field, for example, any custom Ninja version (CPP-17773).

Experimental debugger for MSVC

Some users noticed that the experimental debugger for the Microsoft Visual C++ toolchain had stopped working in the recent EAP build. Now, it’s fixed and back again. We are sorry for any inconvenience this may have caused!

Other fixes

A few issues with disassembling on Windows were fixed (CPP-15210, CPP-15828, CPP-17115).

Besides, there are some VCS improvements coming from the IntelliJ Platform.
