INSTALL EDUTOOLS PLUGIN

For this update, we have focused on increasing the stability of the plugin and eliminating annoying bugs to make your educational experience smoother and more enjoyable. To find out more about the bugs we’ve fixed and the improvements we’ve added, please see our Release notes.

Java, Kotlin, and Scala courses now support using Java 13, and the following features for educators are implemented:

  • Support for Catch, the C++ test framework

With the new version of the EduTools plugin installed for CLion, if you select the C++ (Catch 2.0) course type while creating a new course, you will get a predefined template for your course with tests based on the Catch 2.0 framework and the required setup of a CMake configuration.

  • Hide the “Peek solution” for particular tasks

Since v3.0, it’s been possible to hide the Peek Solution action from the Task Description window for the whole course. With this update, you can hide the action for a specific task as well. Just open the YAML configuration file for the corresponding task and add solution_hidden: true:

solution_hidden_true

Then, when a learner checks the task, the Peek solution action will not be visible for them:

no_peek_solution

To learn more about the other YAML configuration options available, please refer to our web help.
