KDevelop 5.0.3 released

Today, we are happy to announce the release of KDevelop 5.0.3, the third bugfix and stabilization release for KDevelop 5.0. An upgrade to 5.0.3 is strongly recommended to all users of 5.0.0, 5.0.1 or 5.0.2.

Together with the source code, we again provide a prebuilt one-file-executable for 64-bit Linux, as well as binary installers for 32- and 64-bit Microsoft Windows. You can find them on our download page.

List of notable fixes and improvements since version 5.0.2:

  • Fix a performance issue which would lead to the UI becoming unresponsive when lots of parse jobs were created (BUG: 369374)
  • Fix some behaviour quirks in the documentation view
  • Fix a possible crash on exit (BUG: 369374)
  • Fix tab order in problems view
  • Make the "Forward declare" problem solution assistant only pop up when it makes sense
  • Fix GitHub handling authentication (BUG: 372144)
  • Fix Qt help jumping to the wrong function sometimes
  • Windows: Fix MSVC startup script from not working in some environments
  • kdev-python: fix some small issues in the standard library info

The 5.0.3 source code and signatures can be downloaded from here.

Where did you install KDevelop from?

There are two ways to enable the vi-mode:
a) Via the menu bar: Edit -> Input Modes -> [x] vi-mode (this will just change the setting temporarily)
b) Via settings: Settings -> Editor -> Editing -> Default input mode: Vi Input Mode (this will change it permanently)

Hope that helps,

Could you please provide a 32-bit AppImage? I'm stuck on Ubuntu 1204 32-bit

Sorry, that requires yet another step in our release process and it already has too many right now ... I don't have the feeling that there is enough interest in 32-bit linux to make that a worthwhile task.
