Qt Development Frameworks updated Qt Creator to version 4.7.0. Now the plugin of the C ++ code model on the basis of Clang will be used by default.

According to the developers, Clang 6.0 provides full information about the problems in the code and works faster than the built-in model. The user can choose which Clang-Tidy and Clazy checks the platform should perform. If necessary, the plugin can be disabled.

In addition, new Run Test Under Cursor option allows to fast function testing. To do this, the cursor must be inside the function.

Developers have fixed several problems that programmers encountered running Qt Creator under Windows. Improved scanning MSVC compilers, which previously could block the work of the IDE.

Eliminated delays when connected to a common troubleshooting thread. In addition, it was possible to save data on network media, regardless of configuration.

Several convenient options added when working with the file system, for example, in the corresponding window you can show the folders on top. You can connect the auto-scaling function for HiDPI screens.

Programmers already using Qt Creator can get a new version by updating an already installed one. Source code and installer are available on the official website.

The creators of Qt are actively developing their development environment. In version 5.11, they plan to connect the support for Python modules.
