We’ve got great news for you! This year’s first major update, CLion 2019.1, is public!
To update right away, use the Toolbox App, snap package (on Ubuntu), our website, or the patch-update from the latest build of 2018.3. What are you waiting for?
As announced earlier, our main areas of focus this year are IDE performance, expanding Clangd leverage, and Embedded Development. This update makes headway in all three areas:
- Clangd now powers code highlighting, provides more detailed error messages, and performs new inspections.
- CLion’s own language engine has been improved with better performance across the IDE and more accurate refactorings.
- We’ve taken several steps to help you effectively do Embedded Development in CLion.
- Adjust CLion to your code style: ClangFormat, C/C++ naming conventions, and header guards style.
- Project-model-independent build targets and run/debug configurations are now available and are especially useful for compilation database projects.
- Debugger enhancements include:
- Injected languages are here.
- Brighten up your IDE with custom color themes!
- The Rust plugin has been updated.
- Other enhancements include a brand new Recent Locations popup, an improvement for plugin writers, and more.
