That is a shame. I have been working hard to support kxsldbg as a plugin  for 
Quanta ie KDevelop+KDevPlatform and was just about to trickle my changes in 
to svn. 

I am fine with the kxsldbg plugin 
being excluded from KDE 4.1. I had kept hoping that the KDevelop+KDevPlatform 
stability would get better closer to the release.

Andras: I appreciate the heads up, thanks.

The application KXSLDbg 
 works fine as a standalone application and does not use use  
KDevelop+KDevPlatform but instead uses the Kate libraries. 

Will I need to release KXSLDbg via my source forge project website for KDE
