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 […]

While there already is a KPart from the hex editor Okteta, which can be embedded e.g. into Konqueror, but also KDevelop, it is only used Read-Only. More, the KPart system does not enable mulitple views on the same document, so in KDevelop having two views opened for a file, like with a splitted view area, … Continue reading Okteta going for KDevelop (and Kate?)

Some days ago I wrote a mini-tutorial how to use the Okteta KPart in Konqueror/KDevelop. With the mind turned to the Okteta KPart I after that have taken on a long waiting task and removed some code duplication by porting it to the Kasten classes, now that these are available in shared libs. Which means, … Continue reading Binspekt KPart for reuse in KDevelop

Want to quickly see the raw data of files in Konqueror or KDevelop? This is possible with the KPart coming with Okteta since KDE 4.1: Preparations Open “System Settings”, then select “File Associations” (Found under “Advanced”). Select the file type (e.g. “audio/x-wav”) you want to see the raw data of, choose the tab “Embedding”. Within … Continue reading Minitutorial: Viewing raw data of files in Konqueror/KDevelop

General Progress A lot is happening in KDevelop4 these days. Now it’s nearly already 2 Months ago that we had our developer meeting in Ukraine. We had a lot of fun, although for me the trip started two days late. I didn’t get my passport in time, damn. But once there, I got quite productive. […]

Code Assistants When developing for a statically typed language like C++, there usually is quite a bit of redundancy during the development, especially when creating a completely new piece of code. A powerful IDE with deep code understandic theoretically could save a significant amount of the writing work. My goal with KDevelop4 is to allow […]
