hi, thank you for this release, but I would expect a release of kdev-python, as it was here in 4.7.1 and 4.7.2 : how to provide a bugfix for this one in my distro?

Sorry, I'm spinning the tarball for that one and will provide it ASAP.

Nothing changed there between 4.7.2 and 4.7.3, besides the version number btw.

Any chance to get a ppa to install 4.7.3 on Kubuntu 14.04? Thanks! Martin

I noticed that in the latest 4.7.3 release some translation files are missing in kdevelop:

And kdevelop-php-docs doesn't have any translations at all.

Is this on purpose?
I suppose not. ;-)

Also, the translations in kdev-python refer to python3 in one case:
#: debugger/pdblauncher.cpp:85
msgid "Sorry, debugging is only supported for Python 3.x applications."

While kdev-python-v.1.7.3-py3 doesn't contain any translations at all.
So apperantly some mixup happened there?
