Sorry the attachment didn't come through.  I also had intended to send it
directly to you, but my webmail client.

There is a KDevelop manual that ships with Gideon; it's through the
KHelpCenter, but it is listed under KDevelop 3.0.  The best way to find it
is after starting the KHelpCenter, select "Applications", then "Development"
and it should be listed.  Depending on what package you have
(alpha1,alpha2,or cvs) will depend on how (in)complete it is.  You can also
view it through the web site (I'm trying to keep it all synced) at

Settings->Configure Gideon

This was a bug until about 3 days ago.  I fixed it in CVS.

That I am not sure about.  One of the list maintainers will have to help you
with that one.

Ralf will be packaging a new Gideon up for us hopefully by Monday.  Keep
your eye out, as a ton of bugs have been fixed.
