The option is still there, you just need to look for it in your run configuration window.
As you can see in the below GIF, when you create a run configuration it will implicitly run
make before running, and initially it will fail.
The, you edit the run configuration and replace
make, no error check. If you get a
ClassNotFoundException when launching it right after, just re-run it again. I haven't figured out why this happens, it's probably related to how IJ cleans and compiles the classes in this particular case.
