What's new in Code::Blocks

Version 13.12:


  • Support open file's containing folder using the context menu of the file
  • Context menu item to show file in project tree
  • Improved lexers for various languages
  • Added the ability to show tooltips on cbAuiNotebook tabs - show full filename and project in tooltip for editor tabs
  • Added the ability to maximize editors with double-click on tab
  • Add ability to hide the editor tabs, can be toggled with "View -> Hide editor tabs" or "Ctrl+H"
  • Select file from all projects in the workspace (Search->Goto file)
  • Some accessibility improvements - more things are accessible only with a keyboard
  • Lots of improvements to the Marcos support in the options - more options support macro expansion and there are more variables
  • Added per language override for the 'use tabs' setting. Currently only for Python files (always use spaces) and for Makefiles (always use tabs)
  • Use gtk-notebook as default notebook on systems using wxGTK, so the notebook-tabs integrate more smooth into the systems theme
  • Active project no longer stored in workspace but in dedicated layout file for the workspace,
  • Speed up scrolling in wxScintilla
  • Harmonised find and replace dialogues
  • Added power user support for units glob feature. These are directory paths that can be specified, and all files in there will be considered as sources for the project. This can be based on a wild-card for the file types, and can be recursive. When no wild-card is specified (empty) the default CB wild-card for adding files is used
  • Made the localization to be off by default, hopefully this will minimize the number of people getting the right-to-left text issue
