KDevelop 4.7.4 released

Hello!

I have the pleasure to announce the new stable release of KDevelop 4.7.4. This is a bug fix release increasing the stability of our (older) kdelibs4 based branch.

The most important fix and the main reason for this release is making the KDE4 branch compatible with behavior changes in code generated by GCC6 which lead to crashes in KDevelop (https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=360707).

kdev-python 1.7.3-py3 released

Due to a regression in kdev-python 1.7.2-py3 related to module search paths, I have prepared a new release which fixes this issue. All users of the 1.7-py3 series, especially the 1.7.2-py3 version are urged to upgrade as soon as possible. The issue only affects the Python 3 series, for Python 2 kdev-python 1.7.2 is still the recommended and up-to-date release.

KDevelop 4.7.0 Released

Today, the KDevelop team is proud to announce the final release of KDevelop 4.7.0. It is, again, a huge step forwards compared to the last release in terms of stability, performance and polishedness. This release is special, as it marks the end of the KDE4 era for us. As such, KDevelop 4.7.0 comes with a long-term stability guarantee. We will continue to improve it over the coming years, but will refrain from adding new features. For that, we have the upcoming KDevelop 5, based on KDE frameworks 5 and Qt 5, which our team is currently busy working on. See below for more on that topic.

Important KDevelop 4.7.0 Changes

This new release of KDevelop comes with many important changes that should ensure it will stay usable for the foreseeable future. The CMake support was improved and extended to ensure that all idioms needed for KF5 development are available. The unit test support UI was polished and several bugs fixed. In the same direction, some noteworthy issues with the QtHelp integration were addressed. KDevelop's PHP language support now handles namespaces better and can understand traits aliases. Furthermore, some first fruits of the Google summer of code projects are included in this release. These changes pave the path toward better support for cross compile toolchains. Feature-wise, KDevelop now officially supports the Bazaar (bzr) version control system. On the performance front, it was possible to greatly reduce the memory footprint when loading large projects with several thousand files in KDevelop. Additionally, the startup should now be much faster.

KDevelop 4.6.0 Final Released

We are happy to announce the immediate availability of KDevelop 4.6.0! It adds more than a thousand commits worth of
bug fixes, performance improvements and new features.

KDevelop aims to create an IDE which doesn't get into your way and nevertheless provides a powerful
and versatile set of tools for software development. Support for C++ and CMake are KDevelop's most prominent
and widely used features, but the 4.6.0 release -- among other things -- also continues to improve
the language support for PHP and Python.

KDevelop 4.5.2 available

Hello all!

After five months of work the KDevelop team is pleased to announce KDevelop 4.5.2. It comes packed with more than twenty bug fixes, among which are stability improvements that should benefit many users. As such, it is highly suggested to update to the new version as soon as possible.

KDevelop 4.5.2 is going to be the last patch release in the 4.5 time frame. We are already busily hacking away at KDevelop 4.6, which will come with even more bug fixes, higher stability, improved performance and better visuals and workflows. Stay tuned for the release at the end of the year!
