Many many big Thanks.
May be useful to precise :
On which svn version is it based ?
Which TDM version is included for mingw windows version ?

It seems all exes/dlls have not been stripped the debug info.

Great work, thanks!!!
New logo, manual, and now the executable gets (re)linked if any of the dependency libs are changed.
I couldn't spot the "TortoiseSVN" plugin mentioned in the manual ch 2.9. But I don't really need it anyway.
Best regards

I too am having download problems - hosting C::B on  a site that provides "resume" capability would save me a lot of time (and money, as I pay per byte).
Title: Re: Release 12.11 has arrived
Post by: jens on December 06, 2012, 03:04:59 pm
I try to put it onto my server, but the MinGW-version is not downloadable at the moment.
C::B for windows without MinGW can be downloaded from:
http://apt.jenslody.de/downloads/codeblocks-12.11-setup.exe (http://apt.jenslody.de/downloads/codeblocks-12.11-setup.exe)

The version bundled with MinGW follows as soon as possible.
Here it is:
http://apt.jenslody.de/downloads/codeblocks-12.11mingw-setup.exe (http://apt.jenslody.de/downloads/codeblocks-12.11mingw-setup.exe)

Download should be fast and resumable !

Please use sourceforge as alternative download, see our site for the links.

Currently codeblocks-12.11-setup.exe file is available. Rest will follow as soon as Berlios responds.


@ Devs,

By the way, source tarball of Windows binary is missing. Please upload it in Berlios.

Post by: zabzonk on December 06, 2012, 03:22:59 pm
Jens, thanks very much for that - worked perfectly.

I don't suppose any more thought has been given by the devs to moving the project off Berlios and on to somewhere more, um modern? And of switching from SVN to a DVCS? sorry to harp on at this, but I think it will have to be done at some point, if C::B is going to have a long-term future.

first of all thanks for the new release... :D

i have an administrator account on win 7. still it is showing "Cannot create target folder. Installation cannot continue. (Probably missing access rights?)". i need to right click and use run as administrator. no problems after installation though. Note: i have two administrator accounts on my pc.
.... i thought codeblocks would get a new icon, i saw before in one of the posts. i dont see that post now.. ???

Just kidding.
I'm happy that CB has new official version.
Since one year, I am using CB as basic developer tool in our company. It is a little bit tune up version of CB to fit into our developing environments.
Yesterday, I wrote 25 pages document why CB is best choice for us. I would like to push CB as basis tool.  I very much appreciate the remote debugging ability.
The rest of the company is stuck with vi and work in the linux console.

Quote one programmer who stuck with the same problem best describes why I got into this business.

“Lately I have been doing some development on the LINUX and UNIX platforms. And I have quickly come to despise an entire generation of back-bone technologies. I am talking about the tools that make up most of these systems; make, vi, telnet, grep and these kinds of tools. The world would have been a better place if these technologies had been retired 10 years ago. And yet, many users of these systems tend to hail their versatility. If they only would turn their heads away from the terminal screen for a moment, they would see that the world had moved on a long time ago...
Anyway, I once promised myself never to use a vi editor because life is too short to learn another move cursor down key-combination, and since there is no such term as "Integrated Development Environment" available in the vocabulary on these platforms, I decided to make one myself.”

I have mirrored All (except one) CodeBlocks-12.11 release files from Berlios to my server. Mirror can be accessed from the following url.

Quote
http://cb.biplab.in/mirror/12.11/

I have added md5, sha1 and sha256 checksum so that downloaded files (from my mirror) can be verified. Do note that Berlios links doesn't have any checksum verification files. So I generated them on my server.


@ Admins,

1) Debian package links are wrong. Squeeze binary links are pointing to Wheezy binaries and vice versa.
2) Fedora 18-x86_64 release package link is broken. I'm getting a 404 error.

Thanks for reporting !

The berlios interface (or database) seems to be broken. Some files show multiple times with different sizes and are there, and a link for the fc18-x86_64 package was shown, but it was not there. Very weird  ??? .

Thanks Jens. I have updated my mirror.

Probably this experience gives admins a good idea about Berlios.

It's broken and horribly slow for the rest of the world. Download speed fluctuates like hell. Even from my Germany server I was getting a speed of 400 KB/s for many files. Sometimes speed zooms up to 2-3 MB/s. From my home it rarely goes above 100 KB/s. I had to spend considerable time to download them.

There are several good hosts compared to Berlios. IMHO, Admins should give them a thought.

Post by: gundra on December 10, 2012, 09:56:26 am
thank you for the release. the only disappointing thing is that "watches (new)" replaced the good old watches window. it is much harder to debug without local/function variables listed. grid window does not expand automatically: long variables just don't fit int the window. i can't see anything better in this new approach.
is it possible to have the old watches window in 12.11?

Yes, switch to 10.05 and feel the misery of the old watches window.

Hello, I'm a C developer and a proud user of Code::Block since 2 years, I work on Windows 7.
I loved the 10.05 version: it was stable except few hangs when gdb was freezing but nothing impossible to fix with the task manager.
When I saw the 12.11 nightly some times ago, I gave it a try and I was disappointed: lot of UI elements changed in (IMO) the wrong way. I thought that it was a dev build and I said to myself that it'll improve with time. I tried several nighty, then RC1 then the final build and elements I disliked became more and more visible.
I've no problem with changes, but I want them to go in the right direction, here is a short list of what I think isn't (but I won't go against what has been decided by core developers.

1- Watches window: no more a list of variable of the current function: well, I deal with some quite big functions with over 50 variables. To deal with so much, I've functions that modify a lot of them in the same time but as I don't want to read the whole function, with the old system, I'd to watch on what become red after the function, now, I'll have to add _every variable_ to the window, manually... Please, tell me there is a way to get them all easily, the new system seems to have a lot of things to show but without this, I can't do anything :(

2- build options: they are locked when the dbg is running but I don't understand why and there is way to access to it anyway (via project prefs)?

3- can't run anymore a normal instance + one in the debugger, it was damn useful to study soft comportment when he wasn't alone to access to some resources.

4- sometime, when I press 'enter' while moving in the project tree, the tree collapse. (bug?)

5- Syntax color: well, there was A LOT of improvements in this section (:D) but also several weird bugs: the _WIN32 flag, defined at compile time is ignored in the #ifdef in the editor. It's also the case with some defines in #include file. Also, variable call "size" are colored in green. It's probably something in C++ but the project is in C so... it's disturbing. Minor bugs but they make read some long code harder :(

6- After a sigsev, the stack once hasn't been displayed. Maybe gdb failed at provide it but in this case, a message (ex: Stack unavailable) would be great.

7- UX: when the cursor is on a tile name at the bottom of the screen (dbg, search and compilation results,...) and I slide, tiles change very quickly when I highly probably simply want to slide some code. Maybe a pref for that?

I know it's a little bit late but if it could be fixed in a future release, it'd be awesome.
Even if I seem to be an evil user who want to say shit on your hard work, please understand that I wrote this long post simply because I really want Code::Block to be even better and some of all those cool new features that this update bring are hidden under some bugs and UI/UX ditch. I'll report those bugs but the compiler defines syntax color is already filled since 2 years (http://developer.berlios.de/bugs/?func=detailbug&bug_id=17921&group_id=5358) so I was scared that those issues fall into deepest part of the bug tracker without any notice :/

Thanks in advance for read this long post and tell me if you want details on anything (English isn't my native language so some parts are probably hard to understand).

PS: ICC support seems broken under both 10.05 and 12.11, on 12.11, the error message is that it doesn't find VS in the path.

Regards

Taiki

This should actually work... what are your settings in Settings->Editor...->C/C++ Editor settings?
(Correctly) parsing defines from #included files is significantly more difficult than it may first sound, and is currently not supported.

Put your cursor on the panel at the bottom where compiler is logged, global search results are displayed & co.
Put the cursor on a tile, that contain the name of the panel (ex: "build log", "search result") then roll the mouse.
You'll see tiles change really quickly in a unsuable way.

https://dl.dropbox.com/u/12087072/Syntaxical%20color.png << The bug just disappeared u_u
For the parsing, I guess it's hard :p (maybe a setting to explicitly add a define to the list (eg: DEV_BUILD & co)

That's intended behaviour and it is not so unususal.

Nevertheless, you can switch it off by unchecking "Settings -> Environment -> Notebooks appearance -> Enable scrolling with mousewheel".

Please, tell me there is a way to get them all easily, the new system seems to have a lot of things to show but without this, I can't do anything :(
Search the forum...

2- build options: they are locked when the dbg is running but I don't understand why and there is way to access to it anyway (via project prefs)?
I'll fix this some day...annoys me too.

3- can't run anymore a normal instance + one in the debugger, it was damn useful to study soft comportment when he wasn't alone to access to some resources.
This sounds like a bug in the old version.
You can setup a tool to run your output executable.

6- After a sigsev, the stack once hasn't been displayed. Maybe gdb failed at provide it but in this case, a message (ex: Stack unavailable) would be great.
If you can provide the full log from your debug session (see the settings), I can look at it.

Sure but the reason we use IDE is to have a lot of tools just under our hand and it's one less =/

PS: ICC support seems broken under both 10.05 and 12.11, on 12.11, the error message is that it doesn't find VS in the path.
Could you apply this patch to see if it resolves the problem?  (I am assuming that you do have MSVC installed.)

Sure but the reason we use IDE is to have a lot of tools just under our hand and it's one less =/
What you may fail to understand is that oBFusCATed suggested you setup a generic tool using macros in the IDE which you can use on all of your projects to achieve what you want. I've done the same, its vital for some pieces of software. The command is a one-liner, and is attached as "Tool" to C::B but actually starts your currently active target's executable detached (as an example, if you like it that way).

From the version number, I would guess you have the official MinGW build, which uses DW2 exception handling.  However, the release (from what I can tell (http://forums.codeblocks.org/index.php/topic,3299.0.html)) was built using SJLJ.
Only the plugin
The two exception handling methods cannot be mixed (to my knowledge), so you will either have to compile the plugin using this SJLJ build (http://tdm-gcc.tdragon.net/), or build the whole program with your current compiler.

This it pretty much the most wrong way to do it. Use the other options in your project's build options or in the compiler's settings.

The line work on the ICC command line utility but the path is different: http://pastie.org/private/0q2gx3zgm9vo8h1bifp0g

I guess but actually, as I only use c99, I thought it was a good way not to have to set it on every single project I already have.

Code::Blocks modifies the path; you can check what it is by adding a pre/post-build step that prints out the path.

Hi,

pitti platsch (http://forums.codeblocks.org/index.php?action=profile;u=3655), I see you wrap the gdb command in a "dummy variable in python" :). Please note that why we remove such feature in the debugger plugin. In my gdb release: unofficial MinGW GDB gdb with python released (http://forums.codeblocks.org/index.php/topic,11301.msg77000.html#msg77000), I use a special patch that compare the current instruction line(Program counter (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Program_counter)) with the line of a local variable definition, this can void the python script print the uninitialzed local variables.

@ollydbg: Yes, my pretty printer works best (or only  ;D) with your patched gdb. If I knew a way to iterate all symbols of a frame in python, I would not just call "info local".

But in my opinion, gdb pretty printers must be able to deal with arbitrary/corrupt data.
If a pretty printer crashes/turns into an infinite loop/takes too long to complete when handed some arbitrary bytes, then that pretty printer is buggy and needs to be fixed or disabled:
One of the main points in debugging is to inspect data corruption bugs.

@ollydbg: Yes, my pretty printer works best (or only  ;D) with your patched gdb.
Did you test some uninitialzed C++ container as local variables. E.g.
Code: [Select]
void f()
{
    int a;
    vector<string> b;
    ....Some statement;
    map<string,string> c;
}
If you set a breakpoint in the first line of "f", then "b" and "c" are uninitialized variables, they will cause the python pretty printer try to print a large number of elements. Sometimes, it will take a long time, sometime, gdb may crash. Currently no good way to detect a variable is initialized or not. If not, it may have some corrupt values, as the constructor of the container is not called, mayb, the size of the container may be a large value.

But in my opinion, gdb pretty printers must be able to deal with arbitrary/corrupt data.
If a pretty printer crashes/turns into an infinite loop/takes too long to complete when handed some arbitrary bytes, then that pretty printer is buggy and needs to be fixed or disabled:
One of the main points in debugging is to inspect data corruption bugs.
I have asked such question in gdb maillist, but it looks like there is no quick solution/fix to handle this issue. Mostly I think the c-runtime-library should fill the memory with some value like "0xCDCDCDCD", and gdb try to exam its value when it want to deference a pointer.....:)

With your patched gdb, the variables b and c are not listed in "info local" until I hit there declaration lines. And directly adding a watch to b displays as `No symbol "b" in current context.` when I just enter the function.

You are right that there is no nice simple solution yet. My `(void*****)"LOCALS"` python code is just an ugly hack for those who missed the feature and/or do plain C programming without many other fancy pretty printers. It was the only regression that stopped me from upgrading until I learned python. But now I already fell in love with the 'Evaluate expression' tooltips :)

Apart from that, it would be nice to have a checkbox next to each entry in the Watches window to temporarily enable/disable the watch.

For my patched gdb, I just filter out the local variables those definition line is bigger than the PC line. :), This is what my patch trying to do(do a dirty work to avoid crash/lag issue). If you use an unpatched gdb(like the gdb-python27.exe) from mingw official site, you may see the lag or crash issue.

You can ask "oBFusCATed" to implement this, he/she is the debugger plugin guru. Or, you can implement yourself, and post a patch here.  ;D

I don't think it is possible to have checkboxes there, but it can be put in the context menu.
I'll see if I can add it, when I'm back at improving the debugger:)

Finally we managed to release Code::Blocks 12.11 !

You can download binaries for windows, mac and many major linux distros from our download page (http://www.codeblocks.org/downloads/26)

Many thanks to all the contributors and developers who worked hard for this!

I haven't been on this forum in a while, but this is great news. W00t!

Can anyone help me? I am a newbie in programming and there is a bug in code::block, I don't know how to fix it.
A simply addition program has an error. The sum is not appropriate to the the numbers. How can I fix this bugs/errors ? Please help me.
Thank you

FYI, Ubuntu 12.04 update managers (both the default one and Synaptic) with default settings do not find this version 12! They only see 10.05.

We cannot do anything about it. Go bug Ubuntu maintainers to add this package to this version of Ubuntu it is theirs job to do it.

As I was told at http://askubuntu.com/questions/365158/12-04-lts-update-managers-do-not-see-latest-codeblocks, this is a feature of Ubuntu support indeed - limited update capabilities.
Perhaps Code::Block team could kindly convince Ubuntu maintainers to allow users to update to newer versions, a kind of promotion activity of C::B; but that's probably just my a bit silly fantasy.
