ReSharper Ultimate 2017.1: support for Visual Studio 2017 RTM, new C# 7 inspections, code styles and more

This year's first major release of ReSharper Ultimate is now available for download!

Major highlights of ReSharper 2017.1 include:

  • Visual Studio 2017 support: ReSharper respects the current target framework context; you can work in a Lightweight solution load mode; Open Folder functionality is partially supported and Move to Folder refactoring works in this mode.
  • Context actions and quick-fixes for local functions and throw expressions, and other new inspections to support C# 7 language features.
  • .NET Core unit testing support in Visual Studio 2017.
  • EditorConfig support and the new File Formatting Info window that displays the scopes and properties defined in all active .editorconfig files as well as the source of indentation settings and its value, and the status of indent autodetection.
  • Layered settings for tabs and indents to maintain a consistent code style if most of your team members use ReSharper.
  • ReSharper can automatically detect and apply indentation based on the existing file indents, when you reformat a part of code in this file, or when code is auto-formatted on editing or pasting.
  • Contextual configuration of formatting rules is available in С#, C++, JavaScript and TypeScript.
  • Usability improvements to Code Cleanup: you can create and configure custom task-specific profiles right in the Code Cleanup dialog box.
  • ReSharper applies its formatting rules to any code you paste, and, by default, only the indentation is affected.
  • Code style settings for C# type members bodies allows you to choose between always using a body block, with braces, or using the expression format.
  • New C# formatting options such as comma-first wrapping style, configurable line breaks in a single case statement.
  • Find Results window gets a new option to group and filter results by kind of usage.
  • Go to Everything and Go to Text popups support inline commands for advanced filtering of search results.
  • Full support for TypeScript 2.1 and initial support for TypeScript 2.2.
  • The Rename refactoring in TypeScript works faster for local symbols and gets a new option to disable search for dynamic usage of TypeScript symbols in JavaScript files.
  • The Generate Code menu gets a new option to generate properties or read-only properties for TypeScript classes. The Generate Overriding Members command now calls super whenever possible.
  • TypeScript gets highlights and quick-fixes for unused imports in ES6 style imports.
  • Postfix templates in JavaScript and TypeScript are supported.
  • Navigate to Implementing Members in TypeScript and Navigate to Function Exits in TypeScript and JavaScript.
  • Initial support for Angular 2 templates syntax: template expressions, template statements, NgFor directive and template variables.
  • Context menu on ReSharper's File Status Indicator provides quick access to a number of code inspections and commands.

ReSharper C++ 2017.1 comes with these improvements:

  • Support for the Open Folder functionality and CMake-based projects, as well as the Faster Project Load Visual Studio setting.
  • Performance improvements.
  • The Update file header cleanup task and a set of cleanup tasks to fix common code issues.
  • Control flow inspections for class fields.
  • Declaration and assignment can be joined inspection and an accompanying quick-fix.
  • Custom attributes in C++ 11 to mark printf-style functions, functions with side effects, and guard classes for which the Unused variable highlighting should be suppressed.
  • Extended set of C++ postfix templates.
  • New code formatting options: Indenting of preprocessor directives, Indent namespace members, Space after parentheses in cast expressions and Break line in simple case statement.

Updates to other tools within the ReSharper Ultimate family include:

  • dotMemory command line profiler which is extremely helpful when you need to automate the process of collecting memory snapshots.
  • dotMemory and dotTrace profiler can be attached to running applications using drag and drop.
  • Option to switch code coverage highlighting mode in dotCover: show markers, colored background or both.
  • Support for Portable PDB in dotPeek.

CLion 2017.1 released: C++14, C++17, PCH, disassembly view, Catch, MSVC and more

Please give a warm welcome to CLion 2017.1!

Our first big update this year includes:

  • Extended support for C++14 (in brief, all except constexpr are there!)
  • First step towards C++17 support (nested namespaces!)
  • First step to modernizing your C++ code: make auto intention
  • Support for precompiled headers and headers included via -include compile option
  • Disassembly view in debugger (GDB)
  • Support for the Catch unit test framework
  • Experimental support for Microsoft Visual C++ compiler
  • Find in Path in popup
  • Enhanced Log viewer and branches popup

Modern C++ standards

As C++17 has already been approved, we've sped up to support the latest C++ standards. The following features of C++14 are recognized in v2017.1:

  • auto return type,
  • generic lambdas,
  • variable templates, and
  • generalized lambda captures.

Support for these language features includes correct highlighting and no false-positives in code analysis, as well as correct code completion, navigation and refactorings.

This means that only constexpr is actually missing from C++14. As for C++17, we've started with the most upvoted feature, nested namespaces.

There are dozens of fixes for incorrect code resolve and thus no more false code analysis and other related issues. Check out the build to see if CLion got better for you!

Support for C++11 and C++14 will be polished in 2017.1.x and 2017.2 releases, and hopefully we'll be able to devote more time to C++17.

Make auto

While working on modern C++ standards, developers see how new language features can help make their code more accurate and readable. What if an IDE could assist you with the task of modernizing your code? Sounds good, doesn't it?

The first step we've taken in this direction is to add a 'convert variable type to auto' intention in CLion 2017.1. Just put the caret on the type or variable name, and invoke the available intentions list with Alt+Enter. Be careful – keep the code modern, but self-documented. The best general cases to convert variable type to auto are iterators, type casts, new-expressions.

Precompiled headers and more

Precompiled headers and the -include compiler option is a way to reduce compilation time and keep large-scale codebases structured and clear. When using this, you simply compile expensive includes once and then guide the compiler to reuse that information.

CLion 2017.1 correctly resolves symbols from such headers, suggests code completion, navigate to the declarations and definitions. Check more details.


The debugger in CLion 2017.1 received several important bug fixes and a workaround for the GDB timeout issue (which unfortunately still happens to some CLion users).

However, the most important and long-awaited change is the disassembly view in the debugger. When the sources are unavailable, you still can step into and view the disassembly code. Step through it to investigate the issue in your program deeper or to understand what's happening inside a library call.

For now this only works for GDB. For more about the limitations and known issues, see this.

Besides, if you just open a .s or .asm file in CLion (or other extensions, if you add them to Settings | Editor | File Types | Assembly Language) which uses the AT&T dialect and no preprocessor, it will be appropriately highlighted in the editor.


There are lots of unit testing frameworks for C++: Google Test, Boost, CppUnit, CppTest and many more. Catch is one that's known for its easy starting process (just include a simple header) and convenient and flexible test cases.

CLion has had Google Test support for a while, and now we've introduced Catch support. It includes a built-in test runner that allows you to view the test results and sort them by duration, rerun failed tests, export test results, navigate instantly to the source code, etc.

The special Catch Run/Debug configuration is flexible enough to run any preferred set of tests within CLion. For your convenience, it provides you with completion of Catch tags and wildcard-based matching templates to speed up configuration.

To learn more about Catch and how it's supported in CLion, read this detailed blog post.


One more feature that many of our users have requested is support for Microsoft Visual C++ compiler.

There are three important things you need to know if you'd like to try it in CLion:

  1. Use the Registry option clion.enable.msvc to enable this support.
  2. CLion supports Microsoft Visual C++ compiler that ships with VS 2013, 2015 and 2017.
  3. There's no support for msbuild. CLion works through CMake and the NMake generator.

CLion auto-detects the Visual Studio versions installed on your machine; provides settings to configure the Microsoft Visual C++ compiler path, architecture and platform; and finally runs Microsoft Visual C++ compiler to compile your program. It also helps with navigation through the compiler errors in the Messages Build tool window.

It's important to understand that this support is currently experimental, meaning there are known issues, the biggest being that there's no support yet for specific Microsoft C++ language extensions. We will continue to work on it within the 2017.2 EAP.

Find in Path

In CLion it's possible to search for text across the whole project or any selected scope, with the Find in Path dialog. Now it has a popup window with immediate preview, though you can still open a separate Find Window if you wish.


CLion 2017.1 enhances its Log View, making search easier with regular expressions and the ability to match/ignore case.

If you have lots of branches in your project and are afraid of getting lost in them, mark the most important ones as Favorites. The redesigned branches popup then allows you to filter them and view only the favorites.

That's it! Explore all the new features in more detail and watch a quick demo on our website. Start your 30-day free evaluation and check all the new features and fixes.

IntelliJ IDEA 2017.1 is Here: Java 9, Kotlin 1.1, Spring, Gradle, JavaScript and more

IntelliJ IDEA 2017.1 is available for download! In addition to many important bug fixes, this massive update brings lots of improvements to supported languages, frameworks, and built-in tools.

  • Java 9: The latest builds of JDK 9 are fully supported, with assisted project import and coding assistance for editing module declarations. Built-in inspections validate module declarations and provide quick-fixes for adjusting project dependencies.
  • Java 8: Quick-fixes that help migrate for loops to Stream API calls have been improved and now support more sophisticated scenarios. We’ve also added a quick-fix that turns Stream API calls back into for loops, which is handy for debugging or exploring code.
  • Async-aware debugger: Async stacktraces is a new feature that substitutes parts of a stack trace related to asynchronous code execution with data captured from where that code is invoked. This helps you focus on what you’re debugging. An improved Smart Step Into also supports asynchronous code and lambda expressions running on other threads.
  • Better VCS: The Log panel for Git and Mercurial has new display options, the Diff dialog gets an option to Ignore imports and formatting, and File History for Git is now faster. We’ve also added Favorite branches and Speed Search to the Branches popup for Git.
  • Search: The Find in Path dialog, which previously had added a Preview tab, has been reworked from the ground up and now shows instant results in the first place. What is more important, now you can open any selected result in the Editor simply by pressing Enter.
  • Spring: Spring Testing has been updated to support Spring Boot 1.4.3, and the upcoming Spring 5.0. Spring Data tools are updated to version 2.0 (including MongoDB, Redis, Solr, KeyValue, Gemfire, Apache Cassandra, REST, Neo4j, Couchbase, and Elasticsearch). There’s also a new Data tab in the Spring tool window which brings better repository navigation.
  • Gradle: Support for Composite Builds is much improved with the detection of includeBuild in Gradle settings and automatic project configuration.
  • Kotlin 1.1: Among other things, the new version of this JVM language introduces coroutines—the new non-blocking asynchronous API, and fully supports compilation to JavaScript. This means you can use Kotlin strings, collections, sequences, arrays and other core API in your JavaScript apps.
  • JavaScript: We’re bringing first-class support for Vue.js, lots of new code style options for JavaScript and TypeScript, faster and more reliable integrations with Angular, ESLint and TSLint (including language service support and TSLint-powered quick-fixes). Plus, simpler editing of project dependencies in package.json with package names and versions completion and easier running of Mocha and Jest tests with the new Run gutter icon that also displays test state.
  • Database tools: IntelliJ IDEA now allows you to transfer table schemas and data between any two databases (yes, even from MySQL to Microsoft SQL Server and back).
  • Emoji: The editor now supports Unicode emoji characters (handy for writing comments).
  • Android Studio 2.2.2: This update includes all changes from Android Studio 2.2.2.
  • Docker: The Docker plugin now supports Docker for Mac and works via "unix://".
  • Windows: The 64-bit installer for Windows lets you give IntelliJ IDEA more RAM.
