Hey there,

most of us are quite busy if you haven't noticed. And I'm not aware of any big 
new feature work ;-) Additionally, me and quite a few others are using 
KDevelop in production for years. So if you are hitting bugs and crashes, 
consider to dive into the code and fix them. It's most often not that hard, 
really - and you learn a lot, help others etc. - it's worth it :)
