CLion 2021.2 Release Candidate

We are approaching the release, and the CLion 2021.2 Release Candidate is now available for download!

To install CLion 2021.2 RC (build 212.4746.61), download it from the website, update from our Toolbox App, or use this snap package (for Ubuntu).

CLion RC

You need to have an active subscription or a trial license to use CLion 2021.2 RC. No patches will be provided for this release candidate, but you can expect a patch that will update the latest 2021.1 build to the 2021.2 release version.

Give the RC build a try, and make sure to report any problems you find to our issue tracker. We’ll do our best to sort out any pressing issues before the final release, though in some cases the fixes might be postponed until the 2021.2.x bug-fix updates.


The highlights:

  • CLion supports Makefile and GNU Autotools projects, and we are continuing to improve the make command output parser so that it handles such projects even more accurately. In this RC build we’ve fixed an issue with the yasm/nasm invocations (CPP-21708) and improved the preconfiguration step settings (CPP-25744).
  • We’ve fixed a performance issue affecting code highlighting (CPP-25376) and the incorrect syntax highlighting for integer literals with a leading zero followed by a single quote (CPP-25429).
  • A false notification about the CTest version has been removed (CPP-25827).

The full release notes are available here.
