KDevelop 3.0 release Announcement



The KDevelop Team Ships Major Feature Release of Award-Winning Open Source 

February 03, 2004 (The INTERNET). The KDevelop Team is proud to ship 
KDevelop 3.0, the first major release of the completely rewritten, 
award-winning Integrated Development Environment (IDE).

"KDevelop is a key to reaching brand new levels of productivity. It is an 
IDE suitable for every task from system programming to GUI RAD 
development. Integrating all standard UNIX development tools, providing 
support for team development with various version control system tools and 
having a large list of supported languages, KDevelop is an excellent 
choice for UNIX developers. Available on different platforms such as Mac 
OS X and Windows/Cygwin, KDevelop is a great tool for multiplatform 
development. Support for common development tools allows to develop 
applications for a large number of platforms including embedded platforms" 
said Alexander Dymo, project co-maintainer.

"With its new language-independent, plugin-based core and wide support for 
common development tools, KDevelop is already the de-facto standard IDE on 
Linux/Unix desktops" added Harald Fernengel, long-time project member.

"The KDevelop team did an excelent work with this release. Over 40 
developers contributed over a timespan of 14 months to the project. You'll 
notice that care was taken in the documentation and in the user interface. 
This version is powerful, yet easy to use" noted Amilcar do Carmo Lucas, 
release co-coordinator.

Major Enhancements

KDevelop now supports over 15 programming languages and numerous version 
control systems, debuggers, documentation formats and build tools. Any 
Editor supporting the KTextEditor interfaces can be used as native 
KDevelop editor, including kate, qEditor and kvim. Build tools like 
automake, qmake or ant are supported natively, meaning that KDevelop does 
not maintain its own object repository. Changes in the native project 
files will be reflected in KDevelop and vice-versa.

The C++ support offers a class view showing all the symbols either flat or 
hierarchical by namespaces and allows easy code-navigation. A background 
parser updates the symbols on the fly and also shows syntactical errors in 
the source code. The code completion even deals with Qt signals and slots.

With its new open architecture, KDevelop can be customized in every 
respect. The user interface can be switched on the fly from classic MDI 
mode to the modern IDEAl mode, featuring a code-centric approach with 
on-demand tool-views.

KDevelop features extensive support for navigating the source code. 
Symbols and filenames can be accessed by just typing part of the name, 
recently modified files can be reached with a simple keystroke.

KDevelop offers documentation generators, code debugging, memory checking, 
code refactoring, bookmark management, and dozens of tools to make 
development easy and convenient. It is translated into more than 16 
languages, ranging from English to Tamil.
