Just replying on this one:

LLDB is supported on Linux, since 5.1. It uses the lldb-mi binary (which needs 
to be available on your system).

Both GDB/LLDB support for KDevelop is not compiled on Windows at this point, 
since there are issues compiling the terminal adapter (stty.{h,cpp} in 
kdevelop.git) on Windows afair.

Help welcome in that regard -- theoretically both the GDB/LLDB support should 
work on Windows, too.
