Welcome bugreports for KDevelop4

July 6, 2008 at 11:27 pm | Posted in KDE, KDevelop | 8 Comments

I’ve already posted this to our mailinglists: After finishing some bug-triaging we’ve decided that its time to “allow” (as in we won’t immediately close them as invalid) people to report bugs against KDevelop4. The app is now in a state where one can use it for a while for hacking (though it might crash every other minute so save often 😉 and we need a proper bug-tracking tool to continue development in more coordinated ways.

The complete text including some hints how to make the life of us developers easier when dealing with the “new” bugreports can be found at: Post on KDevelop user list


  1. I’m curious about how easy it will be in kdevelop4 to add support for new languages, preferably in the language itself. Kdevelop3 python support was quite useless.

  2. We have a SoC project running that aims at integrating Kross into KDevelop4. You still need bindings for your language for all the libraries in kdevplatform as its not possible to put these under use with Kross (Kross needs everything to be a QObject, thats not going to work for some of the classes in the framework).

    I’m planning to re-vive python support as soon as I can write python plugins for KDevelop4. But even with a plain C++ version the support should be a lot better than KDevelop3 due to the improved infrastructure around language support.

  3. We will have within this week a bindings/scripting sprint in the kdab office in Berlin and a lot of the great bindings-developers will be there plus Aleix who does the gsoc kdevelop4-scripting integration 🙂

  4. Thats great to hear Sebastian 🙂

  5. Great job closing those bugs! Thank you and the rest of the KDevelop team for keepping it rocking!

  6. Great to here that, I’m anxious to see KDevelop4 mature. What about web development support, most importantly PHP? How’s Quanta coming along?

  7. It’s incredible… but Java support?

  8. There’s a new php language plugin in playground which AFAIK does quite well. I’m not sure of the state of the rest of Quanta.

    @montoya: We have a plugin in playground for the language support part, it doesn’t compile right now due to changes in kdevplatform. But it worked already quite ok when I last tried
