KDevelop 4.2.2 released, KDevelop-PG-Qt 0.9.5 released, new website launched

After two months of hard work the KDevelop team is happy to announce the first bug-fix release of the KDevelop 4.2 branch. KDevelop 4.2.2 fixes dozens of bugs. Many thanks to all the contributors who made this possible. Every user is urged to upgrade to this new release. Packagers are notified, most people should hence just wait for an update in their distribution.

As usual this release also contains a new version of the PHP language plugin for KDevelop. New this time is another release of the build-dependency KDevelop-PG-Qt (the parser generator used in the PHP plugin). KDevelop-PG-Qt 0.9.5 fixes a severe bug and brings some other improvements. Please install this before you update your PHP language plugin.

PS: While this release bears the version 4.2.2, it is actually the first bug-fix release. The tarballs for version 4.2.1 where faulty, stay away from them!

New Website

Finally, we are happy to announce that we finally re-launched KDevelop.org website. It runs on Drupal and should make it possible for us to keep it more up to date than the old website. Most of the obsolete KDevelop 3.5 content is gone, we will bring it back under a legacy domain. If you spot any issues with the website, or have suggestions - feel free to contact us. Furthermore, help is appreciated as always! Especially the documentation is now hosted on Userbase and Techbase - fell free to improve it!

So, thanks to all the contributors once more. Enjoy the new KDevelop release.


I wanted to add my gratitude towards the nice guys over at Kollide.net who are now hosting our website. They already do the same for Amarok and Konversation. Much appreciated!


i have tested the beta version of ubuntu 11.04, and found a UI problem of Kdevelop4 in the unity interface.

Because the ubuntu unity use the global menu bar. but the menu bar of kdevelop4 fuse with 3 tabs of the working sets (Review, Debug, and Code). Under unity the menu of kdevelop4 goes to global menu bar in the top panel, and then tabs of working sets disappear. there is no way to switch between the different working sets.

can the UI team solve such UI problem in the future version?

Do you have a changelog online? That would really motivate me more to try the new version..

When I important my project it shows me files under SCCS directory. I don't want them to be part of class hierarchy or context browsing.

How do I do this?

I love Kdevelop 4.2! it rocks.

please use IRC (#kdevelop on Freenode) or our mailing list to contact us. Comments here are not the right way to get support. To answer your question: assuming it's a cmake project, add a ".kdev_ignore" file to that folder.

For excellent work, and in particular for adding back "run in external terminal" option to the build-in debugger!!!
