CLion 2016.3 released: Modern C and C++ support, remote debug on Windows, CMake workflow changes and more

Great news: As of today, CLion 2016.3 is generally available!

In its third and final update this year, our cross-platform C/C++ IDE gets a firmer handle on modern language standards, incorporates top-voted changes in working with CMake project model, and brings lots of other enhancements. Take a closer look at these and other capabilities available in CLion 2016.3.

C++ language support

With C++ evolving quickly, it's crucial for an IDE to support modern standards. While relying on our own parser, we do our best to catch up. Version 2016.3 brings lots of improvements for C++11 and C++14.

User-defined literals

First, we've introduced support for user-defined literals. This concept of the built-in type that you can define based on integer, float, character, and string literals by adding special suffixes, became especially popular after it was included in std::chrono (as well as some other places in the Standard Library). CLion 2016.3 is not only aware of the syntax, keeping code with user-defined literals away from false-positives in code analysis, but it also understands the type and shows it in the Quick Documentation popup (Ctrl+Q on Lin/Win, F1 on macOS). It also allows you to rename such literals.

Overload resolution improvements

In order to make CLion's code analysis more accurate, we've improved our overload resolution support, which eliminates lots of false-positives. You can now catch two problems on the fly in the editor, thanks to the new code inspections:

  • Ambiguous call
  • No matching function to call

Code analysis accuracy

Static analysis in CLion helps you catch problems on the fly and write beautiful and correct code more easily. CLion 2016.3 introduced some important fixes for:

  • Reference may be null checks for one-element initializer list case;
  • Loop variable is not updated inside the loop warnings;
  • Simplify quick-fix for overloaded operators;
  • Unused variable in case of non-trivial destructors (including a fix for for the so called ‘guard' idiom);
  • Platform-dependant sizeof()-related analysis;
  • Local variable is never used check inside the sizeof() expressions;
  • Code analysis check for bitwise shift operators.

It also provides support for __attribute__(unused) and __builtin_unreachable.

C++14 digit separator

The last but not the least, is C++14 digit separator support. Not that much to say here except that it now works, but it does mean that we are open now to C++14 fixes and will look at it more closely soon. So if you have something in mind from C++14 that really annoys you in CLion, let us know.

C language support

CLion is an IDE for both C++ and C, so we've put our efforts in C language support as well, including _Generic keyword support and completion for specific C11 keywords such as _Thread_local, _Alignas, _Noreturn, _Static_assert, and _Atomic:

CLion 2016.3 also introduces support for gcc atomic builtins.

Remote debug

CLion 2016.2 introduced remote GDB debug feature for Linux and macOS. This included connecting from CLion on Linux or macOS to the application running remotely on Linux machine under gdbserver.

With 2016.3 the feature is enabled on Windows as well. Use it to debug applications run under gdbserver on remote Linux or Windows machines. Find more details about cross-platform debug in this case here.

CMake workflow changes

CMake is a core technology for CLion as it's the project model and the whole IDE relies on it heavily. While we still consider adding other build systems support (i.e. Makefiles, autotools, qmake), we want first to finalize the approach CLion takes when working with the project model. With the previous solution, our users have complained about:

  • high memory usage,
  • useless configurations building,
  • performance issues, and
  • restrictions on CMake generation directory configuration.

To incorporate your suggestions and solve the above problems, we've come up with a new approach in CLion 2016.3.

In a nutshell, CLion now builds only one selected configuration and allows setting the CMake generation directory. That also makes it possible to open projects from an already existing CMake generation folder without additional generation (right now this only works for Makefiles generator) - just point to a generation folder or CMakeCache.txt file.

There are also the CMake output logs available in CMake tool window, and the ability to add variables to CMake Cache.

Read more details in this blog post.

Resolve context

Consider the situation when some source or header file is used for several CMake targets, and their sets of variables and flags differ. It could happen that in your editor, code highlighting, find usages, refactorings, code generation and code analysis all depend on these variables and flags. How should an IDE deal with this situation? We believe that the correct way is to take into account the build/run configuration selected (that actually complies with the CMake target).

Since version 1.0, CLion has allowed using a special resolve configuration switcher in the bottom right-hand corner of the editor. However, in version 2016.3 we made it possible for CLion to switch the resolve context automatically when the user changes the build/run configuration. This makes the whole experience nicer and more comfortable. You don't have to think about these things as the IDE does it for you. Isn't that great?

If you still prefer the manual switcher, feel free to use it. However, be aware that automatic switching will then be disabled until the IDE restarts.

Semantic highlighting

When you read code, wouldn't it be great to see how the data flows through the code at a glance? Highlighting each variable/parameter with its own color appears to be possible solution. That's where the idea of semantic highlighting comes from.

Many of you have asked us about this feature in CLion, and today we are glad to say it's available in CLion 2016.3. Three simple rules are used to highlight the code:

  • Each parameter and local variable has its own color.
  • CLion tries to keep colors unique inside the body of a function or lambda.
  • Identifiers with the same name are assigned the same color.

Go to Editor | Color & Fonts | Language Defaults to enable Semantic highlighting in CLion.

Improvements for UE4 projects

Games created with Unreal Engine 4 can be developed with CLion. However, previously it took quite some effort to get a CMake project for UE4 game ready. With a third-party plugin for Unreal Engine, CLionSourceCodeAccess, that task becomes a lot easier.

Another plugin made by one of our team members, Unreal Engine 4 SDK Support, can speed up your game development by adding extra completion options for UE4 reflection specifiers, which CLion is unable to provide by default.

We've also introduced significant performance improvements for re-opening projects that have already been indexed once in CLion.

Here's a good read if you're interested in developing UE4 games in CLion.


Templates are the cornerstone of modern C++, and we believe IDEs should treat them specially.

CLion's Doxygen support includes generation of documentation stubs for types and functions that have parameters, return a value or throw an exception. If there are template parameters in a function, class or structure, CLion 2016.3 will generate a stub that includes the tparam tag.


Like all IntelliJ-based IDEs, CLion 2016.3 comes with a set of improvements for Version Control Systems support:

  • Undo actions for the last change that you haven't pushed yet, and the ability to restore a deleted local branch.
  • Git Sign-off commits possibility.
  • Ability to resolve simple conflicts in one click.
  • Performance improvements for filtering in Git and Mercurial log, as well as some nice UI polishing.


Among other fixes worth mentioning is the Find in Path dialog, which now keeps previously used settings (scope, file name filter, context, etc.) regardless of where you call it from. This can be helpful when doing subsequent searches through the various folders in the project.

IntelliJ IDEA 2016.3 GA: Java 8 and ES6, debugger and UI improvements, and a ton more

Please welcome IntelliJ IDEA 2016.3, the third update of your favorite IDE planned for this year.

The past four months have been a lot of fun! Here’s what kept us busy:

  • Refactoring to Java 8. Since Java 8 was released, IntelliJ IDEA has been providing inspections that help write correct and idiomatic Java 8. With this update, we’ve gone much further and extended our existing inspections to support non-trivial cases.
  • JVM Debugger. The debugger has been extended with Class-level Watches and JVM Memory View, a new plugin that lets you explore objects in the JVM heap during a debug session.
  • User Interface. The editor has been extended with Parameter Hints that show method parameters names for passed values that are literals or nulls. It also introduces Semantic Highlighting, a highlighting mode that uses unique colors for each parameter and local variable. The interface itself has got new flat file icons which we believe are sharper and less noisy.
  • Gradle. A new option, “Delegate IDE build/run actions to Gradle,” allows you to delegate the native IDE Build, Build Artifacts (both WAR and EAR) and Run actions to Gradle. Another new option called “Gradle Composite Builds” lets you substitute any of your Gradle dependencies with another IntelliJ IDEA project.
  • Scala. The Scala plugin adds support for Scala.js and scala.meta.
  • JavaScript. Flow-based inspections and completion; quick-fixes that convert JavaScript to ECMAScript 6; better TypeScript support; improved built-in debugger for React Native, Protractor, Stylelint, and PostCSS; and many more enhancements await.
  • VCS. The Log viewer has been additionally reworked, this time mainly to improve its ergonomics and speed. The Merge dialog now shows a Resolve icon on the left-hand side of the Editor when the IDE is capable of resolving the conflict automatically. Also, the IDE provides an interface for managing Git remotes for every repo in the project.
  • Android. The Android plugin has been aligned with Android Studio 2.2: Blueprint, Constraint Layout, better Instant Run, and APK Analyzer.
  • Database. The Database plugin now allows editing multiple cells at once, submit changes in bulk, and find usages of objects within the source code of other objects (procedures, functions, triggers, views, etc.).

Meet the new and powerful WebStorm 2016.3

Today, we are happy to announce the release of WebStorm 2016.3!

ReSharper Ultimate 2016.2 is Here!

We at JetBrains have just finalized an update to the ReSharper Ultimate family, and we welcome you to download ReSharper Ultimate 2016.2 RTM!

Major highlights of ReSharper 2016.2 are the following:

  • Support for ASP.NET Core 1.0 and .NET Core 1.0 projects, which means that ReSharper now correctly resolves project references and provides its core set of features (code inspections, code completion, navigation, search and refactorings) in projects of this type.
  • Structural navigation, a new feature informally referred to as "Make Tab Great Again". You can now use Tab and Shift+Tab keys to quickly move the text selection to the next or previous code element without having to use the cursor keys, letting you quickly navigate to the next important piece of code you need to edit.
  • Go to Text navigation (Ctrl+T,T,T) lets you quickly find and navigate to any text in source and textual files. This new feature uses trigram indexing to make text search blazingly fast.
  • Warnings in solution-wide analysis help you constantly keep track of all warnings in your solution: both actual compiler warnings and ReSharper’s inspections with the Warning severity level.
  • Marking references as used at runtime to exclude them from code cleanup performed by the Optimize References and Remove Unused References features.
  • New C# typing assistant features, such as auto-replacing MethodName(.) with MethodName()., and correcting mistyped @$ prefixes for verbatim string interpolations.
  • Rearrange code improvements. For example, it is now available in interpolated string inserts, and in expressions with 3 and more operands; Greedy brace feature now works for opening brace, braces of types and namespace declarations.
  • Reworked surround templates. If you need to surround a piece of code with a template, just select the code, and type in the name of a template you need: no extra shortcuts required. In other news, a single template can now be used for for creating code (as a live template) and for surrounding existing code (as a surround template).
  • A new refactoring to move members to another part of a class. You can also use the refactoring over a region to move all region members into a new file with a name inferred from the region name.
  • New quick-fixes and context actions that help simplify string interpolation inserts, revert the order of iteration in simple for loops, or fix awaiting of a void method. In other news, you can now check all parameters of a method for null (or empty strings) with a single context action. You can even uncomment or even delete a comment via Alt+Enter.
  • Assembly dependency diagram that visualizes how assemblies are interrelated via references.
  • HTML analysis inside string literals in .cs, .js, and .ts files, which can be enabled with the context action or with a comment /*language=html*/ ahead of a string literal. You can now use the Mark HTML here action to enjoy syntax highlighting, error detection and other HTML goodies right inside the string literal.
  • Regular expression assistance in string literals can now also be enabled with a comment /*language=regexp|jsregexp*/ before the string literal.
  • JSON value helpers allow you to tell ReSharper to provide code completion or validation for your own JSON files. You can add a helper in the JSON Value Helpers options page, matching based on a filename mask and/or schema match. Custom JSON schema catalogs can also be added in JSON options.
  • Support for the <inheritdoc/> tag in XML documentation comments.
  • C# formatter improvements: new options for indenting of parentheses and code inside them.
  • Improved IL Viewer: types, members, type parameters, local variables, etc. are highlighted with distinct colors; loops in your code can be distinguished by indents and comments.
  • String interpolation suggestions, quick-fixes and context actions are now available for VB.NET. Context actions to convert a string literal to an interpolated string, or insert an interpolated argument are here as well.
  • Improved CSS support: ReSharper’s code inspections, code completion, navigation, search and refactorings are now also available for CSS variables. In addition, several fixes for better spec handling are introduced.
  • Extended TypeScript/JavaScript support including:
    • Generating code with code completion in TypeScript.
    • Improved Find Usages and Rename for union and intersection types.
    • Full support of TypeScript 2.0.0 features, including this for functions, control flow aware type guards, path mappings, optional class members, the never type.
    • Go to Declaration and Find Usages work correctly when dealing with type aliases.
  • The Process Explorer window, which was previously only available in dotPeek, provides you with the list of currently running processes, allows exploring their modules and decompiling those of them that are .NET assemblies.

ReSharper C++ 2016.2 comes with the following set of improvements:

  • Inline Variable refactoring is now available in ReSharper C++.
  • Quick Documentation pop-up appears in ReSharper C++ 2016.2. It can display documentation from Doxygen comment blocks, and even if there is no Doxygen documentation for a symbol, it will display the symbol signature.
  • New code inspections and quick-fixes: There is a new code inspection that warns you about missing include guards in your header files. As a quick-fix, it lets you automatically add #pragma once directive. Another new inspection detects a missing default case in a switch statement with a corresponding fix to add it.
  • Warnings about usages of classes and functions marked with the [[deprecated]]/__declspec(deprecated) attribute.
  • Improved C++14 support: variable templates and decltype(auto).
  • New code style preferences for #include directives in generated code.
  • Code style for default pointer initializer.
  • Automatic completion in C++ can now suggest symbols that are not included in the current file. The corresponding #include directives are added automatically.
  • You can now generate documentation comments for C++ declarators, classes and macro definitions with a context action. The comment stub can be customized by editing the ‘doc’ live template that ReSharper uses for generation.
  • When your caret is on one of the exit points of a function/loop/switch, ReSharper C++ will automatically highlight all other exit points.
  • New formatter settings for single-line functions and lambdas, blank lines around single line function definitions, line breaks before member initializer list, and space between closing angle brackets in template arguments (for conformance with pre-C++11 compilers).
  • The mock function generator now supports the Trompeloeil framework.
  • Completion, usage search and rename of symbols in Doxygen comments.
  • __RESHARPER__ macro that allows you to detect when ReSharper is parsing your source code and, if necessary, disable ReSharper's preprocessor for some code.
  • Performance improvements in indexing and code analysis.

Other tools within the ReSharper Ultimate family have received their shares of improvement as well:

  • dotCover 2016.2 lets you exclude auto-properties from coverage analysis with Hide auto-properties option. It also adds a way to filter processes from console runner to reduce unnecessary overhead by excluding child processes that are irrelevant.
  • dotPeek 2016.2 adds Assembly Dependency Diagram to the existing visual dependency analysis tools. In addition, the IL Viewer now displays code in a more readable manner.
  • dotMemory 2016.2 allows you to compare memory snapshots stored in different workspaces: that is, collected in different profiling sessions. This can be useful to check how particular changes in code affect your application's memory usage.
  • dotTrace 2016.2 Timeline Viewer adds an easy way to fold recursive call stacks to streamline call stack analysis.

AppCode 2016.2 released: Swift inspections and intentions, Introduce Variable, Live Templates, parameter placeholders and more!

AppCode 2016.2 is here, so download and try it right now! And if you've already installed the AppCode 2016.2 RC build, then simply keep it, since it's the same as the released one.


Introduce Variable

One of the most important features from our roadmap, an initial implementation of Introduce Variable refactoring for Swift, is here! Extract Swift expressions from complex ones simply by pressing ⌘⌥V. Replace multiple occurrences of selected expression in one click, and select if you want to specify variable type or make the variable mutable.

Read more about this refactoring in this blog post.

Inspections and intentions

See all errors and warnings immediately in the editor when writing Swift code with SourceKit inspections integrated into AppCode and use the same fix-its as in Xcode for Swift – simply press ⌥Enter on a highlighted region to apply them.

If you happen to mistype something in your comments or code constructs, use the same approach to fix any mistake with new Spelling inspection for Swift.

Read the tutorial to learn more about inspections in AppCode

Live templates

Use Live Templates in Swift to insert frequently-used or custom code constructs into source code quickly and learn more about it in our in-depth Live Templates tutorial.

Parameter placeholders

Have parameter names and value placeholders autofilled simply by invoking completion on a Swift method or function and navigate between them forward and back using Tab/Shift+Tab.


Complete Statement

Use Complete Statement (⇧⌘Enter) in Objective-C code to insert parentheses, braces, semicolons and quotes for such code constructs as if, switch or else. Quickly jump to the place where you can start typing the next statement automatically.

Learn how to use this and other types of completion


Generate documentation comments for Objective-C/C++ methods in no time, simply by pressing /**,/*! or /// and have parameter names inserted into the comment stub automatically.

Use completion inside documentation comment to quickly insert documentation tag or method parameter name.

Benefit from the significantly improved formatting in Quick Documentation (F1) and save your time when updating your documentation – use Rename for method parameters and have them changed automatically in documentation comments.


In debugger tool window, the Watches and Variables modes are now merged so you don't need to switch between them. If you still prefer the old style, a new button is available in the watches toolbar to switch between the modes (new mode is on by default).

Besides, performance improvements made for Objective-C debugger should make rendering large data structures, expanding large collections and stepping through the code faster and easier.


Easily rename Swift methods and method parameters used in Objective-C and quickly find their usages with ⌥F7.


The following changes are available for VCS support in AppCode:

  • To make navigation through the VCS log easier, we've added tooltips with target commit information for arrows.
  • Commit dialog now also shows unversioned files.
  • Support for Apply somehow interactive mode for applying patches.
  • Git/Hg log shows commit details for several selected commits.


  • LLVM and LLDB predefined coding styles added for Objective-C/C++.
  • Font ligatures are officially supported by IntelliJ-based IDEs. If you have a font that supports ligatures installed (e.g. FiraCode, Hasklig, Monoid or PragmataPro), then simply go to Preferences | Editor | Colors & Fonts | Font, choose a corresponding font there and select 'Enable font ligatures'.
  • You can now set any custom background image for the editor window via Find Action (⇧⌘A) | Set Background Image.
  • IDE notifications are now friendlier – they appear in the right-hand bottom corner and are grouped by subsystem.
  • The Inspection results window makes it easier to preview the corresponding piece of code immediately, apply a quick-fix or disable a group of inspections in-place.

CLion 2016.2 released: Remote debug, Doxygen support, operator generation, and smart CMake features

As of today, CLion 2016.2 is generally available.

This is our second release of 2016, building on the idea of releasing more often and bringing you the latest features faster. With many new fantastic tools, CLion can help you become a true C++ rockstar:

  • Inspect code more efficiently thanks to improved performance of debugger drivers and the remote debug possibility.
  • Keep your code well-documented with Doxygen support (and thus reduce maintainability costs).
  • Save time on typing, with lots of new code generation options.
  • Work with CMake project model more easily thanks to smart CMake support.

Let's take a closer look at these and other capabilities available in CLion 2016.2.

Debugger performance

GDB and LLDB debugger drivers have been overhauled to improve both correctness and performance. We thank all our users for your collaboration - all your logs, sample projects and use case details finally made this possible!

If you've ever run into 'command timeout' in CLion, we encourage you to get this build as the problem should be fixed now. Lots of other issues have been fixed as well: 'Variables' windows that wasn't updated on variable setting, problems with showing frames, incorrect debugger exit, and more. As an important result, debugger performance has seen a huge boost – up to 800x in some cases.

The supported GDB version was updated to 7.11 and LLDB updated to 3.8. Besides, Linux users can now benefit from using LLDB (as it was previously available on macOS only).

Remote GDB debug

It's finally here! One of the most awaited features has finally made its way into CLion. Run an executable on a target host under gdbserver, connect remotely using CLion remote GDB configuration, and inspect code more powerfully from the IDE's debugger. Set breakpoints to stop at, evaluate expressions, inspect variables views, change variable values on the fly, and more. For more details about the supported platforms and configuration, see this earlier blog post.

Doxygen support

Documenting code is a best practice that greatly aids code maintenance and support. Now CLion helps you with this by supporting the well-known Doxygen format.

See the Doxygen documentation preview in the Quick Documentation pop-up (Ctrl+Q on Linux/Windows, F1 on macOS), navigate to the function parameters from their description in Doxygen comments, and rely on function and function parameters rename that update Doxygen references automatically.

While adding new Doxygen comments to your code base, use Doxygen commands and function parameters completion, or simply generate the stub for Doxygen comments (it will work if your function has parameters, returns a value, or throws an exception).

More details on Doxygen support in CLion can be found in this blog post.

Code generation

Saving time on typing is really easy with CLion. The many options of its 'Generate' menu (Alt+Insert on Linux/Windows, ⌘N on macOS) have been expanded with equality, relational and stream output operators. Select if you'd like to generate in-place, as class members, use std::tie for the implementation, and more.

Generate definitions (introduced in 2016.1) got updated behavior templates. Now CLion is able to adapt to the patterns you are using in your project. It can detect and support three possible patterns:

  • declarations are located in header files, definitions are in cpp-files;
  • class/struct is located in header file only; or
  • class/struct is located in cpp-file only.

If you switch from one of these patterns to another, CLion will pick up on that and behave accordingly when you use code generation the next time. More on that here.

Another way to save time on typing is the improved Complete Statement feature (Ctrl+Shift+Enter on Linux/Windows, or ⇧⌘⏎ on macOS). It helps you create syntactically correct code constructs by inserting the necessary syntax elements and getting you in position to start typing the next statement. It can complete namespaces, classes, enums, enum classes, structs and control statements. Learn more about Complete Statement in this earlier blog post.

Smart CMake support

We keep working to make CMake easier to use in CLion. 2016.2 adds refactoring support for CMake:

  • Rename (Shift+F6 on Linux/Windows, ⇧F6 on macOS) for users symbols (like functions or macros) - all the usages will be updated accordingly.
  • Safe delete for files - related CMake commands will be updated, and a warning will appear in case of a possibly incorrect command.

To help you become a CMake guru, CLion also offers completion and navigation for user symbols, together with the new Boost-related live templates.

If you want your CMake script to detect that it's being called from CLion ( and if so, set special variables/paths or execute some additional scripts of your choice), you can now do that with the special environment variable, CLION_IDE. Environment variable completion in CMake will make the task even easier.

Code formatting

CLion allows you to configure plenty of code style rules that will be applied on the fly as you type, to help you keep code well-formatted and thus easy to read and maintain. The newest settings fine-tune wrapping for lines after function return type in the scope of a class, in global and namespace scopes, lambda capture list, and in '<<' and '>>' operators.

Also, the list of predefined code styles has been expanded with LLVM and LLDB styles.

Editor and tool windows improvements

If you a fan of fonts with ligatures (e.g. FiraCode, Hasklig, Monoid or PragmataPro), you'll be pleased to know that CLion now supports such fonts. Simply go to Settings | Editor | Colors & Fonts | Font, choose a corresponding font, and select the 'Enable font ligatures' option.

To spice up your editor's look, you can now set a custom background image. Use Find Action (Shift+Ctrl+A on Linux/Windows, ⇧⌘A on OS X), type Set Background Image, select an image and configure its settings in the dialog that appears.

If you work with long files, a new alphabetical sorting in Structure View (Alt+7) can come in handy to locate entities quicker (as opposed the reflecting the order in the original file).

Other changes

There's a lot more in CLion 2016.2:

  • Important improvements in VCS support:
    • Files not yet under version control are now shown in the commit dialog, so you'll never forget anything important.
    • The Log view for Git and Mercurial loads in the background on every change, so it's always ready when you need it.
    • Patches can now be applied from the clipboard or by simply dragging them into the IDE. There's also a Show Diff action to check the changes over your local version, and even a possibility to apply patches to files that were already moved or renamed.
    • Don't worry about case-only renames in Git for Windows and macOS, as CLion now treats these situations correctly.
  • The Inspection results window makes it easier to preview the corresponding piece of code immediately and to disable a group of inspections in-place.
  • The maximum supported version of MinGW-w64 was updated to 5.3, and Cygwin to 2.5.
  • CLion on Windows now bundles a customized JDK version with font-rendering and focus fixes from the JetBrains team.
  • Swift plugin for CLion adds Swift 2.2 support, Introduce Variable refactoring and parameter placeholders for Swift. For more details head to the AppCode blog.

  • Out-of-the-box support. ReSharper 2016.1 provides built-in support for and doesn't require a separate extension to be installed anymore.
  • Support for JSON files and schemas includes the File Structure view, a "Convert JSON string to a Newtonsoft JSON.NET object" context action, JSON schema-aware code completion, inspections and quick-fixes.
  • JavaScript and TypeScript support enhancements include a reworked Rename refactoring (which can now rename files corresponding to TypeScript types), granular formatter settings, and full support for TypeScript 1.8. In addition, ReSharper starts to properly handle some bits of TypeScript 2.0: readonly properties, implicit indexers, private and protected constructors, abstract properties, and nullable types.
  • JSDoc improvements. ReSharper can now parse generics, HTML markup, and parameters with properties in your JSDoc comments.
  • Code style features keep improving. Code styles can now be applied with a single command. Reformat Code, Apply Code Style and Run Code Cleanup commands are now accessible from Alt+Enter menu when you make a selection in the editor. Another improvement covers the use of braces, which ReSharper now helps you make consistent across your code base.
  • Intermediate Language viewer is now built into ReSharper. The IL Viewer, which first appeared in dotPeek 10, is now available for drilling down library code right in Visual Studio.
  • Optimize References learns to handle NuGet references, and Remove Unused References starts to support NuGet references as well.

ReSharper C++ 2016.1 comes with the following set of improvements:

  • To-do Explorer. ReSharper C++ 2016.1 introduces the long-awaited navigation view, which lets you view, group and filter comments that contain one of the 3 default to-do patterns (Bug, Todo and Not Implemented) and any custom patterns that you might want to set up.
  • New context actions and quick-fixes. ReSharper C++ 2016.1 comes with quick-fixes to change variable type, function return type, type of unmatched out of class definition or declaration. Another new quick-fix lets you create a field from constructor parameter. We also added a set of new context actions and quick-fixes for working with #include directives.
  • The list of supported C++ language features is extended with generalized lambda captures, exception specifications, user defined literals and delegating constructors.
  • ReSharper C++ 2016.1 enhances Rename refactoring, which can now automatically rename corresponding files (both source and header) along with code symbols, and to update usages in include directives.
  • ReSharper C++ 2016.1 adds support for the Boost.Test framework to its Unit Test Runner. Please note that only Boost version 1.60 is supported at this point.
  • Code generation improvements. The Generate stream operations can now generate stubs for Boost.Serialization functions. In addition, formatting options are now taken into account when generating code.

Other tools within the ReSharper Ultimate family have received their shares of improvement as well:

  • dotCover 2016.1: Test execution in Continuous Testing for MSTest and xUnit test becomes faster with dotCover 2016.1 thanks to pre-loading test runners, and coverage filters are now supported in Continuous Testing. In addition, TeamCity now understands the output of dotCover console runner and highlights its errors and warnings in the build log.
  • dotPeek 2016.1 learns to show extension methods as instance methods and automatically highlights usages of the symbol under the caret. With dotPeek 2016.1 you can load NuGet packages and their dependencies from any online package source.

AppCode 2016.1 released: better Swift language support, code folding for Swift declarations and more!

AppCode 2016.1 is here, so download and try it right now! And if you've already installed the AppCode 2016.1 RC2 build, then simply keep using it, since it's the same as the released one.


This release delivers a lot of fixes bringing correct parsing and resolve for the following Swift constructions:

  • Types conforming to OptionSetType protocol
  • Self type
  • Variadic parameters in closures and functions
  • Typealias initializers
  • Function array types

Swift code folding

With the code folding for declarations in Swift it's now easy to focus on the most important part of your code. Use expand/collapse actions for current code block (⌘+/⌘-), all code blocks in particular Swift file (⇧⌘+/⇧⌘-) or collapse recursively complex declarations in your code. Read more about all code folding options in this blog post.

CocoaPods support

Now you can edit your Podfiles with all the keywords supported in completion, including use_frameworks, inherit!, abstract!, abstract_target and others. See all these changes in action in the short demo.

Build messages

Parsing of build messages is reworked in the release: now the Messages tool window (⌘0) displays all errors and warnings in a convenient way, skipping all irrelevant information.

Build progress messages were updated to show user-friendly descriptions for particular build phases.

Source directories management

A new context menu called Mark directory as is available for folders in the Files view. It allows you to manage indexing, code completion, code generation or navigation features by manually setting any source directory as:

  • Excluded
  • Library
  • Project sources and headers

Read how to use it and tune any of these options in your project.

C++ language support

You may know that AppCode shares the same codebase for C++ support with CLion, our cross-platform IDE for C and C++. In addition to changes made by the AppCode team, this release delivers a huge number of C++ improvements made by the CLion team including:

  • Support for variadic templates with related fixes in the function overload resolution, which together make it possible to resolve C++ code correctly and avoid many false positives in code analysis.
  • Improved auto-import for STL symbols.
  • Extended information displayed in the Quick documentation popup (F1) which now shows lambda expressions, namespace aliases and explicit instantiation, as well as hyperlinks for types in the documentation text.

CLion 2016.1 released: Better language support and new dev tools

Spring is almost here and so is our new release, CLion 2016.1. This is the version that was previously tagged 1.5 - we hope our new versioning scheme doesn't confuse you too much.

We're nearly done with the announced roadmap, though some CMake items are left for future updates. Many extra features have also found their way into this release. Read on for more details, and then download and try the new version right now!

C++ language support

This release brings long-awaited support for variadic templates (C++11). With the related fixes in the function overload resolution, this makes it possible to resolve the code correctly and avoid many false positives in code analysis. This also means that Qt C++11 connect calls are resolved correctly in CLion.

Auto-import has been improved greatly for symbols from STL, and the quick documentation popup (Ctrl+Q on Linux/Windows, F1 on OS X) now shows lambda expressions, namespace aliases and explicit instantiation, as well as accurately redirecting hyperlinks.

Code generation

In addition to Override and Implement actions that generates stubs for virtual member functions from any of base classes, we've added Generate definitions (Shift+Ctrl+D on Windows/Linux, shift+cmd+D on OS X) which, as you would expect, generate definitions for existing declarations. All three actions put the code in the place the caret is positioned, in case it's inside the class, or ask for a destination in other cases.

'Generate definitions' can be called up in three different ways:

  • By pressing Shift+Ctrl+D on Windows/Linux, shift+cmd+D on OS X.
  • Under the Generate menu (Alt+Insert in Windows/Linux, cmd+N on OS X).
  • As an intention action (Alt+Enter).

CMake and directories control

On the CMake side, a new feature called Reset CMake Cache is now available which allows you to clear the CMake Cache without dropping all of IDE indexes and caches.

Sometimes your project folders may contain binaries, logs, generated data or build artifacts (that you surely don't want CLion to index) or simply libraries (that you don't want to touch with refactorings). To handle this, a new feature was introduced - 'Mark directory As', which allows you to manually set directory as:

  • Excluded
  • Library files
  • Project sources and headers

Read how code completion, code generation, navigation and search features and refactorings are working for each of these cases.

The bundled Remote Host Access plugin will help you synchronize your sources with the remote host from time to time, for example if you develop on one machine but build/run on another. You can configure a FTP, FTPS or SFTP server together with the path mappings and excluded paths (to avoid downloading/uploading any files in particular).


In case you have a process running locally on your machine that you'd like to debug, you can do this within CLion. You just need to have the sources and open them in CLion, then call Attach to local process (from the Run menu or Find Action dialog) – and benefit from the built-in debugger. Processes can be searched by process name or process pid: just start typing and select a match from the list.

New languages

CLion 2016.1 comes with support for two additional languages: Python and Swift. The Python plugin is bundled into the IDE and is on by default. To easily start working on your mixed Python and C/C++ code project, install the Python SDK and point CLion to the Python interpreter for your project.

The feature set corresponds to the PyCharm IDE Community Edition and includes all the essential Python editing features, like code completion, formatting, navigation, etc., as well as Python refactorings, code analysis, and running/debugging/testing the Python part of your project. Get more details and watch a demo in this blog post.

Another addition is support for Swift language. As Apple has open sourced Swift, developers on Linux can now try the language, and for their work an IDE is essential. CLion is cross-platform, so version 2016.1 can be used as a Swift IDE on Linux. Since this is the very first stage of the Swift support in CLion, you'll need to download and install the plugin separately. If we see enough interest from the community, we may later bundle the plugin with CLion, so let us know!

The feature set of the Swift plugin comes from AppCode (our IDE for iOS/OS X development which is based on Xcode toolchain and runs on OS X only). Swift code can be properly highlighted, formatted and completed; navigation and search actions are also available. If you're looking for more high-level features, welcome the familiar Rename refactoring for Swift.

The plugin also includes Override/Implement for functions and protocols, and a built-in debugger. More details and short demo can be found in a related blog post.
