Hi Andreas,

I had a short look at it. Obviously apidox generation in 3.4 is severely
outdated. I got something more useful in these steps:

1) Replace in the top sourcedir with admin/
2) Clean apidocs subdirectory
3) Export DOXDATA=<kde installation directory>/share/doc/HTML/en/common
4) Issue
	admin/ --recurse --no-modulename <kdevelop top source 
directory> .
    (the final dot is necessary, otherwise will not recurse)

The result is in apidocs/index.html as usual. It is not perfect but
seems usable.

Somebody (amilcar???) should have a look at all this before release. I
could give it a try but not before weekend.
