The new CLion 2018.3 EAP (build 183.3795.17) is now available!
If you have the previous EAP build installed, simply get a patch-update right in the IDE. Or use Toolbox App or snap packages (in the case of Ubuntu) to get this update. No license is required and the build is free to use, but it will expire within 30 days of the build date.
Remote toolchain support on Windows
CLion 2018.3 EAP introduced initial remote development support. Now it’s possible to use Windows as a local machine, in addition to Linux and macOS.
A few things are worth mentioning:
- Because of the IntelliJ platform issue with case sensitivity, you need to add property (Help | “Edit Custom Properties…”)
idea.case.sensitive.fs=true, restart CLion and rebuild the project index (File | “Invalidate Caches and Restart”) after that.
- On Linux and macOS CLion uses rsync to synchronize sources. On Windows CLion relies on tar and CLion’s own Remote Host Access utilities, and it seems to be slower than native rsync on macOS and Linux (CPP-14440).
