Yes and no. As with all JetBrains product, it is all based on the same
Kotlin/Java implemented engine. However there are (apparently according
to JetBrains insider sources) some subtle differences in how plugins
work with the different variants of the engine.

Also there is the "which version" problem.

CLion assumes use of CMake/Make for project definition. There are
requests for CMake/Ninja and SCons.

Kingsley is currently trying to get the D stuff working in IDEA with
Dub. If D is to replace C++ rather than
Java/Kotlin/Scala/Clojure/Groovy, then it would be a good idea for it
to work in CLion.
