xdebug plugin is in quanta. So to make it work, just checkout master of
quanta and compile. Xdebug plugin will by automaticly also in kdevelop.

Quanta is only in git.
To compile I'm using this how-to
The first time is a bit complicated (to read and understand all), but
now it's just few minutes of using "git pull" and "cmakekde".

But if you compile kdevplatform, you have to accept, that it is work in
progress and can be unstable.

I'm using it every day. And it's invaluable.
Sometimes it crashes when I'm stopping debug session, but it is not very
often lately.
And very important bug just got fixed (thanks) .
