The point of having KDevelop under trunk/KDE is that it follows KDE's
release cycle/schedule. Unfortunately we're only humans and pretty
limited amount too, so we weren't able to provide something thats
releaseable for 4.1 or 4.2. However that situation has changed now, I
personally and also the rest of the team feels that with the
re-re-visited (i.e. original) 4.2 schedule we are able to ship a C++ IDE
together with the rest of KDE 4.2. So the general KDE 4.2 schedule
applies to us.


Expect a letter from a friend who will ask a favor of you.
