KDevelop for Windows: Official 5.0.1 beta installer available now

Today, we are happy to announce the availability of the first official KDevelop installer for Microsoft Windows. The installer is for the stable KDevelop 5.0.1 release, but we still release it as a beta, since there might be Windows-specific issues.

The installer contains the standard C++ and QML/JS language plugins, as well as the Python and PHP plugins, such that you can use KDevelop to write code in those languages on Windows as well.

Instructions on how to set up a compiler and build system for C++ development can be found here.

When importing or creating a new cmake project i get:

Could not load project management plugin KDevCMakeManager.

It seems the path is not correctly set when using cygwin,
are there a similar setting like path mapping in eclipse CDT?

Hi I'm running Windows 10 and when I start Kdevelop I get a pop-up "There is no disk in the drive. Please insert a disk into drive I". The pop-up can't be closed and Kdevelop is rendered unusable.
