KDevelop 5.2.2 and 5.2.3 released

Saturday, 19 May 2018 | kfunk

We today provide a stabilization and bugfix release with version 5.2.2 and 5.2.3. 5.2.2 was tagged 6 weeks ago, but we never managed to release it because we did not have the patience to fix the Windows installers in time due to a broken CI. Windows installers are provided for 5.2.3 again. We'll only provide source tarballs for 5.2.2 and we encourage everyone to just skip this release and use 5.2.3 which contains a few more bug fixes.

This is a bugfix-only release, which introduces no new features and as such is a safe and recommended update for everyone currently using KDevelop 5.2.1.

You can find the updated Windows 32- and 64 bit installers, the Linux AppImage, as well as the source code archives on our download page.

Please let us know of any issues you encounter when using KDevelop on the bug tracker, in the mailing lists for development or users (,, or in the comment section of this release announcement.
