Mailing Lists Moved to KDE Infrastructure

Hello all!

Today it seems as if our mailing list server has died. Thankfully, we where in the process of moving them over to the KDE infrastructure in conformance to the KDE manifesto.

You can find the new addresses on the mailing list site.

Note: No users where migrated, thus you have to register again! To do that, sent an email to kdevelop-request@kde.org and/or kdevelop-devel-request@kde.org with the subject `subscribe`.

KDevelop 4.4.0 Beta 1 Released

After quite some downtime in the last summer weeks, the KDevelop team finally has a new release in the pipelines: KDevelop 4.4.0. Today we are happy to announce the availability of the first Beta release!

This release comes packed with bug fixes and improvements as usually. A special addition to the KDevelop experience is the new welcome page, which should make it easier for newcomers to use KDevelop and improve the workflow for existing users as well. Looking at existing plugins, we note that among others, the CMake, CVS and Patch Review plugins have seen quite some improvements.

Please test this release and give us feedback to ensure a smooth 4.4 release.

New Forum & Screenshots!

Hello everyone!

We finally have a new KDevelop forum! Thanks to the kind people from forum.kde.org for setting it up for us.

I thought it would be a good idea to get the forum started with a call for screenshots, which will then be shown here on the website. Either post the screenshot in the forum or post a link in the comments here. Please use a creative-commons license and write a short note on your screenshot!

See the forum thread for more details: http://forum.kde.org/viewtopic.php?f=218&t=99510
