    I have the intention to make a final release based on this night build.
    Please test it and report as many problems, so we can have a solid release.

    Thanks to all.

    Do you plan to make an OS-X release (or do you also need OS-X specific problems reports) ?

    Here is a strange behavior I've noticed many times on Windows.

    When a file has mixed tabulations chars for indentation, it is sometimes badly rendered by Code::Blocks.

    It is a little bit hard to reproduce as it doesn't happen each time a file has tabulations inconsistencies.

    You can try doing the following (it has just worked for me) :
    • Open a class header file
    • Replace all tabulations by 4 spaces
    • save the file
    • open the file in another text editor, and replace the first 4 spaces indentation by a tab char
    • save and re-open in Code::Blocks
    • the modified line should appear as if it was having 2 tabs

    Attached are screenshots of the same file opened in Code::Blocks and in another text editor (I've enabled the display of whitespaces to see the difference)

    And then, when a file with this problem is opened in Code::Blocks, if you want to make indents consistents, it won't be done correctly.
    I've tried "Edit" => "Editor tweaks" => "Use Tab Character"
    and "Edit" => "Editor tweaks" => "Make Indents Consistent"

    All lines are correctly indented with tab character but the line #15 still have 4 spaces (and the tab chars are represented as 8 spaces each)

    Regards

    I plan to make an OSX release, but I first need to fix the bundle.sh to add the contrib plugins.
    I'm not sure that it'll be possible to fix many OSX problems at the moment, but if there is something that is really bad I could look at it.

    CentOS 7 and Fedora 25, 26, 27 and Rawhide packages are available from my copr (see signature).

    Building Debian packages is currently stalled. I don't know if I will start building for Debian again, because it's much work and I do not use Debian since years.

    Hi

    Tried to provide bug reports and feature requests, but the redirection to the derlios.de cite is not particularly useful ... no idea how to actually get to the ticket page, all it shows is "Dating", "Gaming" and other such consumer matters.

    I can repost these separately later if you like once the "delrios" matter is corrected, but just so you have the key bits before releasing the new CB:

    Under WinXP64/Win764

    1) SVN 11146 (ie. the previous nightly) crashed frequently.  Not 100% certain, but it seemed to be when there was at least two projects open, each a reasonable number of files in disparate locations, and possibly a large number of targets, and a sufficient number of "switching between" etc.  I'll let you know if 11176 does this, assuming I can figure how to get access to derlios.de/bug reporting.

    2) A long standing "bug" with Fortran (f90) files is that the debug/error list cannot be used (e.g. double click on error) to navigate to the offending line directly.  One must do so manually.  This was a kind of 50/50 hit and miss with GCC/gFortran etc ver's 4.xx, 5.xx (as reported previously some years ago), but since vers 6.xx and 7.xx (and associated GDB's etc)  it almost never works.  Oddly, on the rare occasion when it works, it seems to be now only with linker errors. 

    The feature works with c/cpp files.

    3) Some "feature requests":

    a) The drop down window for selecting project targets is too small/short.  Please allow the scroll box to extend much further (at least 8 -10 lines)

    b) Please add a "view windows/tabs" item to the toolbar that allows reviewing and navigating directly to open files/tabs.

    c) The right-click pop up menu has the vastly most common and important controls in a sub menu (e.g. cut/copy/paste), thus it is an unnecessary extra step to use those important features .. repeated hundreds of times each and every session (yes, I do use the key board short cuts, but still).  Could those appear at the top level in the pop-up, please?

    d) When there are multiple open projects, switching between projects requires going to the "projects" tab, and double clicking on the desired project "to make it the live project".  It would be nice, as with the "target selector" to a have a drop box that lists and allows switching between projects, and so without having to leave the "symbols" etc tabs.

    e) The symbols tabs "collapse" every time a new (open and already used/"symbolised") file .  It would be nice if the symbols list would be preserved (as expanded) when switching between files/tabs and the location of the current s/r/symbol be preserved (i.e. to make it bold for the current procedure of symbol.

    ... these are relatively minor things, and CB is a great product.

    @DrOli: Please post the link that tells you to go to the derlios.de or berlios.de website; it has NOT been the proper website for years.

    in trunk is a version that has a little tool button near the drop down list. There you can search for all targets

    b) Please add a "view windows/tabs" item to the toolbar that allows reviewing and navigating directly to open files/tabs.
    the shortcut "alt+g" is great for finding files

    I too find this annoying, but a larger  context menu is more annoying. I think 90% who use this menu entries more often should use keys for this...

    I agree with this. The Right-Click pop-up has too many things in it and the most important items (cut/copy/paste) are in an inconvenient submenu. Compare e.g. with Notepad++ which I think is more optimal.

    Things I think could be modified in the pop-up menu. These are just my quick personal opinions
    - "toggle breakpoint" could be removed or pushed further down, it has a shortcut and is in the Debug menu anyway
    - "Bookmarks" I never use, could be removed
    - "Format use Astyle" seems like a special feature (I never use it). Move to main Edit menu?
    - "Browse Tracker". Not sure what it is doing. Could be removed
    - "Search at "Black Duck...". Why is this feature here?
    - "Locate in CodeBlocks" . Not sure what it does
    - "Add ToDo Item" ... I never use it
    - "Split View". feature I almost never use


    In short, I think the menu is too cluttered with secondary things, while the most important (cut/copy/paste) suffers.

    Just my opinion.

    We need a reliable way to reproduce this or we need backtraces (or crashes reports, codeblocks.xml, files). Without this information we could not do much.

    2) A long standing "bug" with Fortran (f90) files is that the debug/error list cannot be used (e.g. double click on error) to navigate to the offending line directly.  One must do so manually.  This was a kind of 50/50 hit and miss with GCC/gFortran etc ver's 4.xx, 5.xx (as reported previously some years ago), but since vers 6.xx and 7.xx (and associated GDB's etc)  it almost never works.  Oddly, on the rare occasion when it works, it seems to be now only with linker errors. 
    The output is parsed using regular expressions. They could be edited in the advanced compiler options dialog or in
    the options_gfortran.xml. Most of the users and developers of cb are c/c++ devs, so we need help with the support
    for other languages.
    If you provide patches, I'll happily review and apply them.

    c) The right-click pop up menu has the vastly most common and important controls in a sub menu (e.g. cut/copy/paste), thus it is an unnecessary extra step to use those important features .. repeated hundreds of times each and every session (yes, I do use the key board short cuts, but still).  Could those appear at the top level in the pop-up, please?
    Often reported problem which doesn't have a good solution, because the current menu is made of the set of things people use often.
    I'll move some of the menu items around and test with myself if migrating to the new configuration is too annoying or I can get used to it.
    If the experiment is successful, then I'll make a change for some night build to see how this change is received by more people.
    This could be improved if you disable some of the plugins you don't use.

    d) When there are multiple open projects, switching between projects requires going to the "projects" tab, and double clicking on the desired project "to make it the live project".  It would be nice, as with the "target selector" to a have a drop box that lists and allows switching between projects, and so without having to leave the "symbols" etc tabs.
    This could be done in the similar fashion to the target select dialog, so patches welcome.

    e) The symbols tabs "collapse" every time a new (open and already used/"symbolised") file .  It would be nice if the symbols list would be preserved (as expanded) when switching between files/tabs and the location of the current s/r/symbol be preserved (i.e. to make it bold for the current procedure of symbol.
    The symbols browser is going away with the next release (the c/c++ version), at least for people on linux/osx. So it is not too good if you're to used to it.

    p.s. if you want to turn this in a discussion about the context menu, please start new topic! This one is for bug reports!

    I have rebuilt from https://github.com/obfuscated/codeblocks_sf under Kubuntu 17.04
    It resulted in build 11179. The build is fine, but I experience problems with the debugger (also seen before in build 11019).

    Problem description: I have a console program using a .so library. The program runs fine, but the debugger only works for the main project, not for the code in the .so library. Breakpoints are ignored and I cannot step into the code in the .so library. Both projects are built with debug options.

    Is this a known problem?

    cacb: What happens if you use gdb from the command line? Can you debug your library? Are you sure you're not stripping the symbols of your library (-s option)?

    There should be no symbol stripping going on, I have used this setup for a long time. I also checked the project file, but could not see anything like that.

    on gdb from the command line, I can try. But I have never used gdb from the command line before so I will need to figure it out, how to set breakpoints and step etc.

    EDIT: I was wrong, sorry. Indeed there was a -s option causing symbol stripping! Now the debugger works as expected, thanks a lot!
