bug fixes

  • Fixed: hiding line number margin is no longer possible
  • Find In Files: should now load faster on Windows
  • Fixed: File System Workspace: keep the last 'File mask' value used
  • Language Server Protocol: Initialized notification to the server
  • Prevent hangs under Wayland when changing Workspace View tabs
  • Properly save/load workspace breakpoints and avoid mixing between two different workspaces breakpoints
  • File System Workspace: when 'remote development' is enabled, do not attempt to remote save a file that is not part of our source tree or was opened by the SFTP plugin
  • Fixed: crash when switching between themes
  • Windows / macOS: Ctrl-TAB is broken
  • gdb does not display local variables properly
  • Creating a new file from the context menu in the File System Workspace - does not add it to git or svn
  • Outline: honour the general background theme colour
  • Bootstrap wizard: if the user select Default profile, load all plugins
  • Fixed crash in codelite-terminal when executed with --command
  • Fixed: SFTP overrides file attributes if these were modified after the file was loaded into CodeLite
  • LLDB settings: keep the full path for debugserver
  • Fixed: cppcheck is now working from the context menu again
  • File System Workspace: set the default working directory to the workspace folder
  • PHPdoc return value is not handled correctly


  • Displaying the parent folder in the tab label is now optional
  • Git push: just execute git push without prompting the user to select remote
  • By default, show minimal list of buttons in the toolbar when first time installing CodeLite
  • By default, enable minimal list of plugins (by profile type)
  • File System Workspace: split the settings into 2 different files: a local and shared file. The content in the "local" files is kept under .codelite/ directory in the workspace folder and is not to be saved into git or any source control the default .workspace file contains properties that should be shared
  • File System Workspace: added 'working directory' field
  • Language Server Protocol: optimized the traffic between LSP <-> CodeLite by adding checksum checks before calling LSP to re-parse a file
  • Language Server Protocol: added support for implemented 'extDocument/documentSymbol' protocol message
  • PHP: update PHP xdebug UI view to fit the IDE look
  • Language Server Protocol: added an option to pass environment variables + initialization options directly from the UI
  • GDB: Honor user's ~/.gdbinit file
  • File System Workspace: added an option to use remote build
  • Internal changes to how GDB communicate changes to CodeLite
  • Appearance: honor *system* dark themes
  • Language Server Protocol: install the user code completion provided by clangd automatically
  • macOS: we now build CodeLite using macOS 10.15.5 (Catalina)
  • Windows: better support for Dark Theme (Windows native)
  • Creating or deleting a folder via the 'Explorer' view, will automatically sync PHP workspace
  • file system workspace: extend the default file extensions to show with *.py, *.rb, *.php and *.php
  • python support: adjust method document style to match the NumPy method as described here:
  • [PHP] Find functions in context when inserting PHPDoc
  • [PHP] Add return type to signature
  • [PHP] Add nullable type to signature in auto-complete
  • [PHP] Hint nullable and default values
  • [PHP] Handel parsing of by reference values in PHPDoc
  • [PHP] Allow parsing of nullable types from PHPDoc
  • [PHP] Handle parsing PHP 7.1 nullable types
  • [PHP] Handle common mistakes when parsing PHPDoc
  • [PHP] Add missing native types
  • [PHP] Group tags in generated PHPDoc
  • [PHP] Set return type to mixed when unspecified
  • Callgraph is no longer included in the default installer of CodeLite
  • File System Workspace: added the ability to exclude folders from the workspace. The folders are still visible, but they will be excluded in various operations, like Find In Files, Parsing etc
  • Full parsing of workspace is roughly 30% faster now
  • Renamed default build system from "CodeLite Make Generator" -> "CodeLite Makefile Generator"
  • Added new Build System: CodeLite Makefile Generator - UNIX - which generates UNIX compatible Makefiles, even when on Windows (useful for cygwin / MSYS environments)
  • contextual highlight is no longer done using the SQLite symbol database, as a result it should feel much more faster
  • Git reset: added a WARNING icon to the dialog + Cancel button (which is now the new default)
  • Navigation bar now also displays "git blame" info (author + commit hash + date) for the current line
  • UI updated to the Preferfences and Colour and fonts dialog
  • Refined dark theme support by removing various border which might look bright on dark theme
  • Added an option to hide the main editor's tab area (Windows & macOS only)
  • Language Server Plugin: you can now mark an LSP as SSH. This will execute it on a remote machine instead (you still need to make sure that it is installed on the remote machine)
  • Quick Debug: it is now possible to debug over SSH from. Just state the account + binary to debug and CodeLite will do the rest
  • Language Server Plugin: opening a header file will now automatically send the implementation file (cpp) to the active LSP for parsing. This way we make sure that goto-definition will work immediately
  • Implemented a proper "switch to workspace" functionality. It is now possible to call Open Workspace without the need to the currently opened one. In addition, CodeLite will now display a dialog that will list the last opened workspaces
  • PHP Find In Files: 1. Starting find-in-files from the context menu will force the find-in-files dialog to use the selected dialogs from the tree view *this are transient paths and will not be remembered* 2. Starting find-in-files from any other way, will use the last used settings
  • Fixed: find in files offset is broken when non ASCII text is presented in the editor
