Let's start with some luridness:

Now from the beginning: I got to know quite a few people in the past decade (phew, I'm such a dinosaur!) who use Kate as their editor of choice to hack on C++ code, on a daily basis. While I totally agree Kate is an

Heya,

just a short heads-up that KDevelop is seeking for a new maintainer for the Ruby language support. Miquel Sabaté did an amazing job maintaining the plugin in the recent years, but would like to step down as maintainer because he's lacking time to continue looking after it.

Here's an

You might have noticed there's KDevelop for Windows out now...

Which is already great in itself! But now it's also possible to install it via the super popular Windows package manager for Windows, Chocolatey.

Here's all you need (in case you already have Chocolatey installed on your system):

On Sunday, this year’s KDE sprint in Randa, Switzerland came to an end and I am now back home. It was a productive and fun week, as always when meeting the other KDE folks. I spent a lot of time on polishing things and fixing small issues mostly in KDevelop, such as: reduce flickering of the completion widget in kdevelop fix various cases where KDevelop’s navigation widget (see above) would […]

I am currently at the KDE sprint in Randa, Switzerland. There are about 40 nice people here, working on making KDE software awesome. This year’s focus is on deploying our software more nicely — on Windows and OS X, but on Linux as well. Especially for user-faced applications like KDevelop, it really makes a big difference whether you use today’s version, or the one from two years ago. Many people […]

Right now, around 40 developers are working together on bringing KDE to other platforms in Randa (Switzerland) for an entire week.

I just arrived Sunday evening, and we immediately started with discussions around KDE on different platforms. Not much coding has happened yesterday evening yet, but I at least managed

Note: These instructions apply for Ubuntu 16.04, too

Recently, I've got several mails from people desperately trying to compile KDevelop on Ubuntu-based distros. Let's give them a hand by providing them a quick start guide!

I spent the last two or three days playing around with KDE on Windows, with the aim of getting my Python language plugin for KDevelop to run there. In the end, it wasn’t that hard to get this to work — not as hard as I would have expected it to be, anyways. Several things needed to be fixed in kdev-python, the build system required a bit of tickling, but […]

Hey all!

I have the pleasure to announce the releases of two new KDevelop versions:

On one hand, there is the new and shiny KDevelop 5.0 Beta 2 release, which brings us much closer to a final release. Tons of issues have been resolved, many features got polished, and even our UI cleaned up a bit here and there. And did I mention impoved OS X and Windows support? See here for more:

Besides this new beta release, which is where most of our effort went into, I am also happy to announce KDevelop 4.7.3, a new bugfix release of our latest stable KDE 4 based KDevelop. Several annoying problems are resolved now, see the announcement for more information:

Many thanks to everyone involved!

Cheers
