This change has been marked as submitted.

Review request for KDevelop and patrick pereira.

Repository: kdev-embedded


The problem:
During the automatic SDK installation it was saved to `QStandardPaths::writableLocation(QStandardPaths::DataLocation)`, usually inside *~/.local/share/kdevelop/*, inside a folder called *arduino-*`ARDUINO_SDK_VERSION_NAME` (which is a constraint).
The problem begins once the plugin get an update and `ARDUINO_SDK_VERSION_NAME` changes (which was already happened, **1.6.9** to **1.6.10**).
As we are searching for arduino inside *arduino-*`ARDUINO_SDK_VERSION_NAME`, the previously downloaded SDK will not be visible anymore.
With this path, SDK will be saved to `QStandardPaths::writableLocation(QStandardPaths::DataLocation)`*/arduino* so it won't get lost anymore.

*Please note, this change does not affect the internal SDK versioning, which is handled in an another place and based on *arduino/revisions.txt* content, not on the folder name*
