Your testing is very welcome. The C++ support is quite far, on my test 
projects it already works quite reliably. I usually do my testing on 
kdevelop4, kdevplatform, and recently kwin(from kde-4) and amarok(kde4 
version). Notice that after opening a file, you need to insert at least a 
newine somewhere so uses are built and navigation works nicely. For those 
projects my testing was quite successful, however I only tried out a few 
source files.

The important thing to get working C++ support is that you create the projects 
using the cmake build-manager, and configure a build-directory. (Both is 
needed to get correct include-paths).

If you encounter crashes while parsing your project(no matter whether it's 
cmake or the C++ parser), please post backtraces to this mailing-list. It's 
too early for bug-reports.

Just by the way, you should NOT enable the "Parse all projects files on 
project open", because it still takes too much memory.

Greetings, David
