- minimized KDevelop doesn't restore back during compiling any more
- messages output view isn't activated again with every new 
  inserted line
- accel clash with bookmarks and views repaired 
  (Alt+0..9 is for Bookmarks again, Ctrl+0..9 is for views now)
- fixed that configure didn't recognize the argument given by the
  dialogbox the first time (only after reloading the project)
- On project creation neither the configure argument --prefix
  nor --enable-kde=no (for qextmdi projects) were not passed,
  unless --with-qt-dir was set.
- KDevelop setup default values for editor changed

  missing 'endl' anymore

  Now it's possible to use this framework for either QT/KDE 3
  or QT/KDE 2.
- corrected some compile/make flags stuff
- introduced the NOOPT_CFLAGS for all projects
- Fixed that when we opened a popup menu FocusIn and FocusOut was
  called for KWriteView which makes it very slow because of the
  triggered repaint.
- disappearing editor cursor fixed (lose focus only when tool-views
  have the focus)
KDE3-only changes:
- mode switch TabPage-->Childframe and TabPage-->Toplevel fixed
- crash when closing a file in Tabpage mode fixed
- kdevelop compiled for KDE 3beta2 creates kde/qt projects for
  QT 3 and KDE 3beta2/Beta2
- text output of messages output-view repaired
- attempt to avoid infinite recursion in KToolBar

1) Used cvs branch for this release is KDE_2_2_BRANCH

Current CVS version
These issues are already fixed/done after the Beta 2 release tag.

- There are problems with the accels; use KDE 3 beta 1 with this
  version of KDevelop to avoid the problems
