8 years - phew! - that was a long time ago.

I'm afraid I haven't done any Objective-C programming for over 5 years, and
I'm a bit out of touch with how the GnuStep project is doing. Do they still
not have a dev environment? They've certainly got a nice version of
InterfaceBuilder I think.

The C++ parser in KDevelop4 is a lot more sophisticated than the one that
KDevelop 1.x had, and I would expect it to be a lot more work to add than it

took me.

It looks like the KDE4 version of the Kate text editor has Objective-C

mardigras rdale 509% ls ./share/apps/katepart/syntax/object*

It took very little work to get gdb working with KDevelop 1.x as it's just
part of gcc, and so maybe that bit wouldn't be too hard.

I can forward this mail to the kdevelop-devel list just in case someone has
thought about Objective-C support.
