Sounds good, but I have two issues with master which shouldn't be released 

 - This manpage plugin freezes kdevelop for me (for approx. 10 seconds) when 
moving the mouse over certain declarations such as QString (because it uses 
kio synchroneously and because there's apparently a bug in the manpage kio 
which makes it hang for a while on some search queries -- or it's just slow, 
I'm not sure), and I have heard that from other people too.
Long story short, I failed to fix it so far and I think we should either 
investigate or at least disable the plugin by default. Since it involves 
manpage stuff, this issue could very well be distribution- or setup-specific.

 - Sometimes, all language plugins take forever to parse stuff (a minute per 
file-ish). This can only be resolved by clearing the cache (not even 
restarting the application helps). Did anyone else see this, or is it just me?
