CLion Early Access Program

We at JetBrains believe that making tools for developers should greatly involve listening to developers. Our Early Access Program lets development community closely participate in discussions devoted to our products and influence development planning, from early stages onwards.

Why should you try EAP builds?

Early Access Program allows you to try pre-release versions of our software to evaluate features that will be added to the next release.

It is important to distinguish EAP from traditional pre-release software. Please note that the quality of EAP versions may at times be way below even usual beta standards. Please use CLion issue tracker to report bugs and suggest features.
