It doesn't matter wether it breaks any version older than 3.3.0 because
those are completely unsupported. Even for 3.3.x we don't offer active
support (we still host the code in branches/kdevelop because newer
kdevelop only works with KDE 3.4 or older).

And svn history doesn't show any changes that would indicate a fix for
coloured make output between 3.3.0 and now. There's one change though
that might accidentally fix it, the introduction of the ActionFormat
(introduced in April 2005, I doubt anybody using cmake is using such an
ancient kdevelop)

Maybe the change rather happened in cmake, i.e. in earlier versions it
didn't use isatty to check for a tty but instead always printed
