Update Cutter to 1.12.0

Authored by aleksvor on Fri, Sep 4, 7:40 AM.




  • Decompiler
    • Context menu interactions with the decompiler are now context sensitive, only relevant menu items are shown and they applied to the item that was clicked.
    • Decompiler based Syntax Highlighting in the Decompiler widget (old highlighting mode can be chosen in appearance options).
    • Support opening multiple Decompiler widgets at the same time. Each of the instances can be set to show different decompiler (Ghidra, RetDec, r2dec, ...) and different functions.
    • Make the current-address synchronization consistent with rest of widgets.
  • Other
    • Support analysis after opening the file.
    • Configurable analysis options from the Preferences widget.
  • Radare2
    • Cutter 1.12.0 depends on radare2 4.5.1.
  • Known limitations
    • The new features in the Decompiler work best with r2ghidra, not all of them are implemented for r2dec.
    • Some hacky features, like instruction patching, that were available in the previous context menu are not available in the new one and might be added in the future.
    • Decompiling large functions using r2ghidra causes UI to freeze temporarily.

Depends on D9578.

Test Plan

Disassembled /bin/ls, checked Dashboard, decompiled main function with r2dec and tested syntax highlighting with KSyntaxHighlighting.
