    Phoronix: KDevelop 4.4: Not Much Is New With The IDE

    KDevelop 4.4.0 was released today as the latest version of the KDE-focused integrated development environment (IDE), but it's hardly worth getting excited over...

    They should instead contribute to Qt Creator.

      Honestly, I think it's really absurd that you tell me what to invest time in.

      Furthermore, KDevelop as a project and my involvement in it largely precedes QtCreator. Awkward...

        Nah, I like KDevelop much more than Qt Creator.



        @ apol: Ignore the haters, KDevelop is an amazing IDE :> Keep up the good work!

          Does it have cuda support (syntax highlighting) in the newer versions?
          I'm running the one that is packaged for OpenSUSE 12.1 (I think 4.2) and the lack of it is somewhat annoying...

            Ease of use is so under appreciated

            I think the welcome page makes KDevelop 4.4 a great release. Bravo to the developers!

            What I hope is that the KDevelop team is planning at some point to make it into a visual development studio. There is a very big deficit of visual programming capability in the Linux world.

            GUIs are our friends. They should be first rate citizens within the IDE itself.

              These trolls seem to be everywhere these days, most of them users but almost never contributers of FOSS projects themselves.
              Somehow they always end up seeing themselves above a stream of development power which,
              as they don't contribute to it themselves, they feel the responsibility to guide in the most wise way (ie. "THIS AINT WANT LINUX NEEDS TO SUCCEED!!1").

                It's not the welcome page that excites me, but the bug fixes (specifically for a crash I was experiencing). Many thanks for all the hard work!

                  Proper python autocompletion + pyqt seems to be on the todo list of qtcreator forever and kdevelop seems to be not as fast with it either, but at least it seems to be active: http://quickgit.kde.org/?p=kdev-python.git&a=summary
                  As a beginner it would be so much easier to get into when you wouldn't need to look at the documentation all the time how every signal is named, etc... All the "python ides" are very strange to me, even eric5 doesn't seem to autocomplete signals... Sadly pydev in eclipse seems to be still the python ide that gives the best out of the box experience. :/

                    KDevelop is my IDE of choice on Linux for C++ programming when I want the IDE experience (for editing a self contained piece of code I prefer vim). Excellent work. Now if I could integrate valgrind and gdb with an interface as powerful as ddd and as usable as KDevelop - one can dream.

                      Since IDE is All-Day-Inside kind of software, optimizations are always welcome (especially for things that you spend most time on, like you know writing code :P)

                      PS Have KDevelop some nice editor features similar to SumblimeText or TextMate? (oh like fancy block choosing, etc.)

                          Right, because of course when a new project comes along everyone working on existing projects should immediately drop those projects and join the new project. That is a great way to make progress.

                          If anything it should be the Qt Creator people contributing to KDevelop. But that is also silly, since these projects have different goals, so there is a place for both of them.

                            QtCreator and KDevelop news

                            IMO it should be viceversa.

                            Qt Creator feels awkward to use, cmake support sucks and is Qt-Centric.

                            KDevelop can be used successfully when coding STL/Boost only projects. KDevelop also supports other languages than C++ (ruby,java,py,php) KDevelop though lacks qt creator's cross compile support, but unfortunately Qt on nokia devices is dead and i still haven't seen any apps using Qt on android.

                            just my 2c


                            And for the news part. Custom buildsystem is being moved to be a core module of KDevelop.

                              I've only switched to KDevelop a short while ago, but it was able to autocomplete the GLFW, Ogre3D, and Bullet libraries, the debugger works as expected, and the build system is just CMake. I'm not sure where the STL/Boost-only projects statement is coming from. Can you elaborate on that?
