This is the New & Noteworthy page for CDT 9.10 which is part of Eclipse 2019-12 Simultaneous Release
Added a new checker to verify direct float number comparison. See Bug 545704.
Added a new checker to verify the usage of not allowed methods and/or functions. See Bug 545954.
Added a new checker to verify if variables are static in header file or if multiple declarations of variables are on the same line. See Bug 545977.
|Return of local variables addresses||
Added a new checker to verify if a method or function returns the address of a local variable. See Bug 546173.
|New language settings provider: Compilation Database Parser||
For managed build projects, it is now possible to specify the path to a compile_commands.json and reuses existing build output parsers (GCC, MSVC) to detect all the language entries for each file (macros, includes, etc). With this, there is no need to do a full build and in fact no need to have a working build configured in CDT for indexing to work and be fully configured. See Bug 548730.
Note that for CMake projects (Core build), compilation database parsing is already done automatically. The new parser aims to give more flexibility for other project types.
