New Features

  • Suggest items that are not in scope while completion. Now you don’t need to remember where the necessary item is located and even the precise name of this item. You just need to start typing item’s name and then select it from a suggested list. The corresponding extern crate and use items will be inserted automatically gif. Special thanks to @Riateche for trying a nightly version of this feature and the corresponding feedback. It helped us to find out and fix some bugs before this release

  • Show Use of possibly uninitialized variable annotation

  • Make various improvements of cargo check external annotator:
    • Show progress indicator when cargo check is running
    • Don’t provide outdated or duplicate errors
    • Introduce Toggle Cargo check action to quickly enable/disable cargo check annotator
    • Take into account Offline mode setting
  • Add new formatters for GDB. They support rendering of Rc, Arc, Cell and RefCell structs in addition to standard formatters provided by rustup. Also, they should fix some bugs in string displaying gif. You can disable them or switch to default ones in Preferences | Build, Execution, Deployment | Debugger | Data Views | Rust

  • Support type inference for async blocks, functions and lambdas

  • Add quick fix to create lifetime parameter from usage gif (by @sirgl)

  • Provide dbg postfix completion gif

  • Allow installing clippy from IDE if it’s not installed. In case if you don’t have clippy, the plugin will suggest to install it in one click, when you launch Run clippy action

  • Infer type of box expressions like box Foo and box patterns like let Foo { box x } = expr

  • Show Experimental feature error annotations for irrefutable let patterns, box expression and box patterns features

  • Implement special support for Serialize, Deserialize and Fail traits from serde and failure crates respectively. Now they can be correctly resolved and suggested in derive attribute.

  • Support focus mode for Rust files

Fixes

  • Prevent showing annoying File not found for module error annotation for incomplete code

  • Various Auto Import quick fix improvements:
    • Do not provide the quick fix for names which are already in scope. It’s mostly helpful when an item is already imported but cannot be resolved because code is incomplete (like let map = HashMap)
    • Correctly import items re-exported via use item with a wildcard like pub use core::future::*
    • Make the quick fix works for paths with type params like let map = HashMap::<i32, i32>
    • Do not suggest to import the same trait several times when the quick fix is available for trait method. It also improves name resolution of trait methods in cases when the corresponding trait is not in scope.
  • Slightly improve completion performance

  • Improve type inference of patterns in for, while let and if let expressions

  • Allow extracting a function from a single expression

  • Macro expansion improvements:
    • show macro expansion action shows error balloon if it failed to expand macro
    • Expand macros in statement context
    • Correctly expand macro with $crate metavar inside a group
    • Support keywords as metavar names
  • Save all documents before running any external process from a run configuration. It should prevent invoking cargo on outdated sources

  • Provide proper documentation link for renamed dependencies in Cargo.toml (by @bc-lee)

  • Do not show extra line markers after a syntax error

  • Improve parsing of async functions and use items

  • Provide New | Rust file action only inside Cargo project directory

Internal Improvements

  • Update IDEA, CLion, gradle & kotlin

  • Update kotlin language and API versions to 1.3. So now it’s possible to use all new features from kotlin 1.3 for the plugin implementation
