We are happy to announce the immediate availability of KDevelop 4.6.0! It adds more than a thousand commits worth of
bug fixes, performance improvements and new features.

KDevelop aims to create an IDE which doesn't get into your way and nevertheless provides a powerful
and versatile set of tools for software development. Support for C++ and CMake are KDevelop's most prominent
and widely used features, but the 4.6.0 release -- among other things -- also continues to improve
the language support for PHP and Python.

Hello all!

After two more weeks of stabilizing KDevelop, we are happy to announce the availability of KDevelop 4.6.0 RC 1! If no blockers are found, this will lead to the release of 4.6.0 final in two more weeks.

The KDevelop team is pleased to announce the availability of the first beta release of KDevelop 4.6! This is a testing release and we would be happy about any feedback from early adopters. Please report any issues you find at http://bugs.kde.org.

Hello all!

After five months of work the KDevelop team is pleased to announce KDevelop 4.5.2. It comes packed with more than twenty bug fixes, among which are stability improvements that should benefit many users. As such, it is highly suggested to update to the new version as soon as possible.

KDevelop 4.5.2 is going to be the last patch release in the 4.5 time frame. We are already busily hacking away at KDevelop 4.6, which will come with even more bug fixes, higher stability, improved performance and better visuals and workflows. Stay tuned for the release at the end of the year!

kdev-python 1.5.1 has been released (a few days ago already, actually), which contains a few bug fixes over 1.5.0.

Grab the tarball from: http://download.kde.org/stable/kdevelop/kdev-python/1.5.1/src/kdev-python-v1.5.1.tar.bz2.mirrorlist.

Good news everyone!

KDevelop 4.5.1 has been released, it's still fresh for all of you to try. For those who don't know, KDevelop is an IDE for all those developers who want to integrate the tools they need for developing, in a comfortable and simple solution. We have a focus on C++ and CMake, but you can find it useful when using other languages such as PHP and Python.

Half a year after the first stable release, I'm happy to announce the release of kdev-python 1.5 today, which brings Python support to KDevelop 1.5. Together with 1.5, I release the second (and last) update for the 1.4 series which contains two backported crash fixes. Please refer to announcement on my blog for more information. Download links are in the full view of this article.

Hello all!

Today it seems as if our mailing list server has died. Thankfully, we where in the process of moving them over to the KDE infrastructure in conformance to the KDE manifesto.

You can find the new addresses on the mailing list site.

Note: No users where migrated, thus you have to register again! To do that, sent an email to kdevelop-request@kde.org and/or kdevelop-devel-request@kde.org with the subject `subscribe`.

Time flies… The extremely productive hack sprint at the friendly Blue Systems office in Barcelona is over for more than a week. I haven’t had time to blog about the last days yet which I hereby make good for!

I spent a lot of time at the sprint polishing the KDevelop Clang plugin. A up-to-now semi-secretly developed language plugin based on clang which will replace our current C++ language support in KDevelop in the long-run.

Hey all! Greetings from the joint Kate/KDevelop sprint at the Blue Systems office in Barcelona!

I only arrived yesterday but already I have great news for you: After months of work I finally merged the sharedurls branches into master for KDevelop/KDevplatform etc. pp. There I worked on a optimization in our handling of file paths.

The status quo up until know was the following: When importing a folder as a project in KDevelop, we filled a model with every file and folder in the project (recursively). For every item we also stored its path as a KUrl to the potentially remote location. KUrl and QUrl are awesome when you have to work with paths and urls, but as soon as you store potentially thousands of them at the same...

I hope you liked that talk. I certainly had fun presenting it and discussing the contents with various attendees later on. I have now quite some ideas on how to extend the talk even further.

The slides of the other presentations are...
