Hey all,

as discussed with Aleix and Kevin during QtCS, we want to release KDevelop 4.7 
asap. There are a few blockers still in master which I want to look at now. 
Here's my list, please comment on what regressions you notices:

- assistant focus management
sometimes, the assistant gets focus while it should not, e.g. in the middle of 
typing which leads to a very awkward workflow

- project manager view focus management
sometimes, instead of copying code from the editor, one copies the file from 
the project manager view. On paste, one then inserts the URL to said fail. 
Again, very awkward

- cannot show multiple toolviews
this used to work (see mailing thread about that from a few days/weeks ago).

Once that's in, I think we can release master more or less as-is. Please take 
a minute to review your recent changes and make sure to polish them. I'll 
branch off master into 1.7/4.7 branches next week. We could then also release 
the first beta, hopefully. The final release should then happen in July, lets 
say on the 20th at the latest?

Objections? Feedback?
