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.)
They should instead contribute to Qt Creator.
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.

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?

I really love KDevelop, yes even over Qt Creator. It has a really amazing insight into the code and so you can do some very cool navigation, completion and refactoring. And it would be perfect if KDevelop also supported Java so I could get rid of annoying or bloated Java IDEs. Oh and some more integrated support for QML and OpenGL/shaders would also be awesome. Keep up the great work KDevelop hackers, you make an awesome IDE.
The kdev-python plugin for kdevlelop works great today. Atlest for python 2.x

I didn't realize this existed. Pretty much exactly what I was searching for, thank you!

I think many of the more advanced editor functionalities is unnecessary when you have a intelligent language parser as in kdevelop, eclipse etc. But I have never tested sublime so much I have a opinion on the specific editor.
