KDevelop4 Beta5 tarball updated

Unfortunately I suck, hence the originally uploaded kdevelop4 beta5 tarball didn’t include the version increasement (thats the only missing change, so the help->about KDevelop will show the wrong version). I’ve fixed that now and re-uploaded a new tarball for kdevelop, this should show up on the mirrors in a couple of hours.

To make sure that everybody has the right packages, these are the md5sum for the proper packages:

70064ad0e285d29242a90af3f3c2283f kdevelop-3.9.95.tar.bz2
2ee0d124682bb3cbc3f1068389749e0c kdevplatform-0.9.95.tar.bz2

So if the md5sum of your kdevelop-tarball doesn’t match, re-download it in a few hours.

It seems like screwing up once wasn’t enough this time, the kdevplatform package also had a wrong version. I’ve uploaded a new one, but syncing will again take some time. Here are the latest md5sums:

70064ad0e285d29242a90af3f3c2283f kdevelop-3.9.95.tar.bz2
e38fd54ea9c16b41222e893c06ca3946 kdevplatform-0.9.95.tar.bz2

KDevelop4 Beta5

I’ve just released the fith beta of KDevelop4 into the wild, so go get it 🙂

We’ve fixed quite some crashes and also implemented a few new features, among them improvements in the refactorings and a new patchreview toolview (see Views->Add Toolview). That allows you to easily review patches inline in the Kate editor. This way we combine diff-viewing with the powerful semantic highlighting from the C++ support.

I’d also like to point out that this is the last beta that will be working with KDE 4.2.x, the next one (still at least 4 weeks away) will need KDE 4.3.0 or 4.3.1 (we’re not yet 100% sure about the patch-level). The reason is quite simply that for 4.2.x compatibility we need quite some extra code/ugly ifdef’s and you’re missing out on some features which are only possible with 4.3.x.

Update: You can find the source packages on the KDE mirrors.
