CLion 2022.2 EAP7: Toolchain Updates

A new CLion 2022.2 EAP7 build, 222.3345.16, is available from our website, via the Toolbox App, or as a snap package for Ubuntu. If you are on macOS, there is a separate build for Apple Silicon (M1 chip). Those who are already using EAP6 can apply a patch to update to EAP7.


Toolchain enhancements

CLion comes with Ninja bundled, however in some cases it couldn’t be found for CMake Presets (CPP-29198). CLion now appends the path to the bundled Ninja to the PATH environment variable to fix this problem. Note that CLion doesn’t bundle Ninja for remote toolchains.

CMake v3.23 is bundled with this EAP. The bundled LLDB was updated to v14.0 on macOS and Linux.

For the purpose of development in Docker containers, CLion provides full Docker integration via the dedicated Docker toolchain. However, it’s only intended for local Docker configurations, and remote Docker users are supposed to use the remote toolchain. To clarify this, CLion now warns you in the toolchains settings if a remote Docker container is selected:
Docker warning

The full release notes are available here.

Please evaluate the new enhancements and bug fixes and share your feedback with us here in comments or via the issue tracker. Thanks!
