ClangFormat - bundled version? How to specify custom version?


I want to use a fairly new feature in clang format, specifically the BlockIndent option of AlignAfterOpenBracket:

AlignAfterOpenBracket: BlockIndent

The json schema does not recognize this value, and when I try to format it gives me an error.

How to I tell what version of ClangFormat CLion is using, and how can I specify a different version to use?

FWIW after more searching I found this issue and comment which explains the situation well. In my case the answer is probably either:
1. wait for a newer version of ClangFormat to be included in CLion
2. add a precommit hook or equivalent to run clang-format for that one option

Unfortunate, but will make do.
