I’ve just released the KDevelop Custom Buildsystem version 1.2.2 suitable for usage with KDevelop 4.4/KDevPlatform 1.4. There have not been many changes, mostly just adaptions to KDevPlatform API changes. The only real new feature is the ability to filter our version control directories like .git or .svn. Downloads can be found on the KDE download […]

Sometimes it’s hard to get started using a tool, some people call it white page syndrome, in KDevelop we had the gray page syndrome: I guess you see what I mean. To solve this problem we discussed many times about creating some way to Kickstart a KDevelop session properly, this is what I came up […]

Hi! It’s been probably too much time since we announced a KDevelop version for the last time, but hey! Here we are, as alive as ever! 🙂 Actually it hasn’t been a quiet year, there’s been quite a lot of development going on, specially with regard to stabilization, improved integration facilities and, of course, Milian’s […]

Hi fellow KDE! Today I would like to talk a little about some work I’ve been doing recently in KDevelop in order to assure we have a good path for the new KDevelop user and KDE or free software Developer. I think that KDevelop has been quite good at being adopted by people who know […]

Every project has these things nobody looks into, like these corners nobody clean. For some reason today we realized that we ¿still? have, in our repository, some files like this. Here there’s a good quote: – KDE 2 is not supported, neither Qt 2.0. KDE 2 is in development and KDevelop will be ported after […]

As some of you will know, these days the KDevelop team is staying in Switzerland with a bunch of KDE developers where we’re having some sprints, for me it’s KDevelop sprint mostly although I’ve had very different and interesting conversations for the days here. We’ve just got asked to tell what we’re working on. I […]

I’ve probably been talking lately too much about where I was going to spread my KDE love and talking too little about what I’ve been doing and what’s happening: Akademy-es: Yes! we’re having the Akademy-es in Barcelona this year and I know you won’t miss it. Yay! Awesome. Well it takes some preparation, so it … Continue reading So… what’s cooking? →

Today the repository for the Custom-BuildSystem plugin moved to So you’ll have to adjust your remote urls accordingly. The right url can be found easily on the new project page of the plugin. I’ll delete the gitorious project sometime next week so people are not getting confused too much.

Its been quite a while since I blogged, but this is really worth it. I was talked into doing a first release of a KDevelop 4 plugin I’ve worked for some time now (thanks Milian 😉 ). There’s been already a blog entry about it before that highlighted the features the plugin has and what […]

KDevelop is out in version 4.1, and better than ever! Thank you, great hackers of KDevelop, I would need to learn Emacs/Vim without you! 🙂 Among all the great features there is now also what had been basically done at the Kate-KDevelop sprint in Berlin this February, when streets were covered with thick ice and … Continue reading KDevelop 4.1 arrived, features Okteta plugin

I’ve switched away from konqueror about half a year ago as the amount of sites that weren’t working quite properly became too many and too important (like our internal wiki and ticketing at work). Konqi was also getting kinda slow back then. I never had the time and energy to pursue any of the problems […]

Yeah, thats right, I just replaced the original repo content on via a forced-push with a newly generated repo. This was necessary as I missed a conversion-error from the svn2git rules earlier which screwed up the checked-out content of the repository. I’ve decided to do a forced push instead of trying to fix up […]

Wow, I haven’t blogged this much in quite a while… This will be a relatively short announcement that kdevelop, kdevplatform, quanta and the two php plugins have been moved to This will allow us to work on features more easily and hopefully also help us get the next release finished before another 2 years […]

Those reading the dot regularly will already know it, the final release of KDevelop 4.0 is out. For more extensive information what it includes I suggest you read the dot story. It only took us 3 years to get there and I think what we’ve accomplished is quite amazing. And its just the beginning, we […]

Google just announced the official and final list of accepted students for the SoC program. KDE got more accepted students this year than past, so its a big success for us all. This will hopefully again be a successful SoC season for KDE, bringing new contributors and implementing lots of cool ideas. The KDevelop team […]

This time around svn got me, I’ve used the createtarball script from kdesdk to generate the RC2 tarballs so we ship translations. This worked just fine, except that for some unknown reason svn likes to not check out svn:externals when doing an svn co of kdevplatform. This resulted in a kdevplatform tarball (yes I didn’t […]
