KDevelop 4.3.1 Released with improved GCC 4.7 compliance

Just one month after the KDevelop 4.3.0 release, we are happy to announce the immediate availability of KDevelop 4.3.1 - a stable bugfix release.

Noteworthy Changes

There were a few important bugfixes since KDevelop 4.3.0, hence you should update as soon as possible.

Improved C++ support

On machines that already use the recently released GCC 4.7, you need KDevelop 4.3.1 to ensure proper support for many C++ stdlib classes in our language support. This is due to the usage of the new C++11 noexecept keyword in the stdlib header files, which was not supported by KDevelop until now.

Furthermore we managed to resolve a nasty bug in our template support, which so far could freeze our parser when processing specific template code. This means you can finally use the famous Eigen library among others in KDevelop again.

Other Bugfixes

Beside the notable changes above, KDevelop 4.3.1 comes with lots of bug fixes for our PHP and QtHelp documentation plugins, the PHP support and other areas. As usual, we also managed to resolve a few crashes. For the full overview, take a look at the changelog files.

Many thanks as always to the various contributors who made this release possible.


Thanks to the help of various packagers, you should already be able to update to KDevelop 4.3.1 without hassle. If you want to download the sources or have a look at the changelogs, you can find both on the official KDE mirrors:
