Thanks for replying. So essentially, at this point there can be only one 
target per project right?

Second, i do not know what the current plan is with regard to the "debugger 
executable" settings i would request that this be made a setting per project 
(maybe even per target!) but not be made global. I work a lot with embedded 
systems and currently toggle this setting between "arm-none-eabi-gdb" and just 
"gdb". I understand if this is unfinished but i hope it is considered.

Ps: I tried finding my way through kdevelop but clearly, kdevelop is a complex 
project and i'm not cut out for it! ;) Thank you all for working on this
