Here just a few interesting things from my side:
1. KDevelop Teamwork will probably be ready, so it'll be possible to 
communicate directly within documents(discuss about passages of source-code 
while the code is located in the document using an editing-tolerant 
algorithm), collaboratively edit documents, and exchange patches for review. 
I'm still planning to add jabber support once the C++ support calms down a 
bit. :)
Here's some more information about it

2. Code completion:
- Nearly configuration-free(only include-path needed)
- C++ part is striving for nearly complete code-understanding, which will lead 
to refactoring once the understanding is good enough
- Full Metaprogramming support with static expression evaluation etc.
- Navigation-views directly integrated into the completion-list
- Recursive argument-hints, highlighting of match-quality in the argument-hint 
list, and in the completion-list
- "Best matches" section at the top of the completion-list with items that 
match the arguments of called functions best
- Completion for operators like "bla << |complete here"
- Code-highlighting based on code-understanding

Just to mention some of the things coming into my mind that are greatly 
different from kdevelop-3.

Hope those points help you a little. :)

greetings, David
