No. KDevelop3 supports only 1 project at a time. You can however create
two subdirectories, one for the library the other for the application.
How to do that depends on the buildsystem you want to use.

No problem, except that the first part doesn't exist. How you layout
your project is totally up to you.


Make a wish, it might come true.
