KDevelop 4.5.0 Released

We are happy to announce that KDevelop 4.5.0 is now available. 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.

What's new

KDevelop is getting more mature in every release and this new version is a proof. Firstly, in this new version you will find brand new integration for Unit Tests, so that you can easily run and debug them while working on your projects. Furthermore, you'll find an iteration of our New Class wizard, many changes regarding polishing the UI in different places, better support for C++ 11 features and some other things you'll find along the way.

You can find a bit more information about what we have been working on in the last sprint's wrap-up page:

Get KDevelop now!

If you want to try it, you can either compile it from our tarballs or use your distribution's packages. You can find more information about how to install it in your distro on this wiki page: http://userbase.kde.org/KDevelop/Install4.5

Have fun using it, looking forward to your feedback!

The KDevelop Team



KDevelop 4.5 was already in archlinux repos when I saw the annouce :-)

...but I was expecting the brand new cool splashscreen into this release... :-(

Lack of windows builds, I am using kdevelop on my home laptop, but at work I have to use other IDE because no builds for windows.

Is it possible to build kdevelop for windows?

I love the IDE it is fast and comfortable, and I think if there was a windows port then the popularity will grow in geometric progression.

Unfortunately there is no ready-made builds for KDevelop on Windows as far as I know, since it lacks someone who is willing and able to work on KDevelop on Windows. Contributions would be very much welcome here!

I love the unit tests integration. Really useful.
The list of unit tests should be alphabetically sorted, otherwise it is hard to find a test in a long list.

Thanks for the new release!
