Improvements


  • Increased the external tools limit from 10 -> 20
  • wxCrfater: Wrap the include statements part of the generated code with // clang-format {on|off} block this will disable any include sorting done by clang-format which might break compilation https://github.com/eranif/codelite/issues/2298

  • New build system. the old Default was renamed and now is called Default (DEPRECATED). The new build system performs a full out of the source tree build. The entire build artifacts are placed in a single folder under the workspace path, this is similar to CMake
  • New workspace type introduced: The File System Workspace see: https://wiki.codelite.org/pmwiki.php/Main/FileSystemWorkspace
  • Improved startup time by reducing the number of syscalls significantly
  • Language Server Protocol: discard code-completion responses if a new request was already sent to the server
  • Use PATH to search binaries instead of hard coded /usr/bin/ path
  • UI: Updated the tabs drawing (mainly the "DEFAULT" and the "MINIMAL" styles)
  • wxCrafter: UI update: the right side view no longer has a splitter, instead it only uses tabs
  • Debugger->Attach to process dialog: the process ID is now also used for filtering
  • File System Workspace: save all modified files before the build starts

  • Restart all LSP once a build process is completed
  • SFTP: once we open the SFTP browser to view a remote server, keep the session
  • Simplify the LSP configuration dialog
  • UI updates to the tab drawings
  • Increase startup time of CodeLite by reducing sys calls
  • Language Server Plugin: support for auto inclusion of missing headers
  • Language Server Plugin: auto detect ( by clicking the Scan button ) installed LSPs currently supported: `python-language-server` and `clangd`
  • VIM plugin imporvements
  • New Class dialog simplification
  • Outline tab: remove the search text control, you can now use Ctrl-F search a symbol
  • Fixed clang compiler detection. On OSX, also search for clang compiler installed by brew
  • Bash editor: make $ a valid word character
  • More DPI aware changes
  • File System Workspace: dont use the 'Quick Debug' for starting debug session
  • File System Workspace: store the breakpoints when the workspace is closed
  • File System Workspace: add an option to choose debugger in the settings dialog
  • Code completion: don't add extra > or " when choosing an entry from the #include completion list
  • Code completion: constructor items are marked with the proper icon in the completion list
  • Code completion: template items are now completed in the editor in the form of: vector<|> where "|" marks the caret
  • Quick Find All / Add Next (Ctrl-K) -> honour the find bar options (wholeword, match case etc)
  • LSP: added an option to restart the LSPs
  • Performance improvements
  • Auto search and detect LSP (clangd, python)
  • C++ parser thread will now parse also files without standard C++ extension which defined as such under 'Settings->Code Completion->General'
  • Visual updates to the 'Replace In Files' view
  • GDB: limit the number of displayed elements of arrays / object with a configurable value. The default is set to 100
  • File system workspace: added an option to hide specific file types from the vie, with reasonable defaults: "*.o;*.pyc;*.obj;*.workspace;*.o.d;*.exe;*.dll;*.project"
  • Python: typing """ followed by an ENTER, generates and insert a block comment
  • Python: support Ctrl-/ and Ctrl-Shift-/ for inserting block / line comments
  • Docker: auto detect docker binaries
  • Docker: make the 'build' Dockerfile command work out of the box without setting anything in the 'Build' tab
  • LSP plugin: added 'Find Symbol' to the editor's context menu
  • Fullscreen is now persistent between restarts
  • Fixed: macOS on retina display blurry images are loaded
  • SFTP plugin: support ssh-agent
  • Language Server Plugins: support connecting an already running LSP server (can be on a remote machine)
  • Reload File: keep the folding + bookmarks set on the file
  • Separated between the 'smart paren/bracket' and 'auto add closing paren/bracket' functionalities in the UI. i.e. these 2 now have 2 different checkboxes in the UI
