What's New in Extra Clang Tools 5.0.0?
Some of the major new features and improvements to Extra Clang Tools are listed
here. Generic improvements to Extra Clang Tools as a whole or to its underlying
infrastructure are described first, followed by tool-specific sections.
Major New Features
Improvements to clang-query
The improvements are...
Improvements to clang-rename
The improvements are...
Improvements to clang-tidy
- New `cert-dcl58-cpp
<>`_ check
Finds modification of the ``std`` or ``posix`` namespace.
- Improved `cppcoreguidelines-no-malloc
<>`_ check
Allow custom memory management functions to be considered as well.
- New `readability-misleading-indentation
<>`_ check
Finds misleading indentation where braces should be introduced or the code should be reformatted.
- Added `ParameterThreshold` to `readability-function-size`.
Finds functions that have more then `ParameterThreshold` parameters and emits a warning.
- New `hicpp` module
Adds checks that implement the `High Integrity C++ Coding Standard <>`_ and other safety
standards. Many checks are aliased to other modules.
- New `modernize-return-braced-init-list
<>`_ check
Finds and replaces explicit calls to the constructor in a return statement by
a braced initializer list so that the return type is not needlessly repeated.
- New `misc-forwarding-reference-overload
<>`_ check
Finds perfect forwarding constructors that can unintentionally hide copy or move constructors.
- Support clang-formatting of the code around applied fixes (``-format-style``
command-line option).
