Why are you disappointed? What did you expect? I dont quite understand
this attitude.

What release have you tried? There wasnt any recently, afaik, and
KDEVELOP_1_4 did have a lot of problems, that's fairly well known.

Yep, dont work anymore, I can prob. fix that since I think I was the
one who broke it.

Cleanup off these is in progress. Unfortunately some parts of this code
are in _bad_ shape. I just spend 5 hours to clean up some things and
probably broke more than I went out to fix...

These are _old_ bugs, that are in KDevelop since ancient times, mostly
design mistakes, half finished projects and some things are simply not
possible without any kind of a data structure behind an application.

Where, which one, examples would really help here. 
If you would get this kind of bug report, you wouldnt even read it to
the end...
