» KDevelop 4.0.2 and KDevelop 4.1 Beta 1 released

Sun, 09/05/2010 - 19:13

Good news everyone, this time in a double feature!

I’m happy to announce the availability of two new additions to the KDevelop release family:

KDevelop 4.0.2 stable release

Lets begin with the boring part: We have released KDevelop 4.0.2, together with KDevplatform and the PHP plugins. You can find the sources here:


This is a bugfix only release and everyone is urged to upgrade as soon as possible. Users should wait for their distributions to provide packages for them. The tarballs contain changelogs if you are interested what happened since 4.0.1. Or read them online:

Note: This is (most probably) the last release in the 4.0 branch. We don’t have enough manpower to handle more than one stable branch. Which makes me come to the second part of this mail:

KDevelop 4.1 Beta 1 experimental release

We are very happy to publish KDevelop 4.1 Beta 1, which will be the branch we are concentrating on in the next time. You can find the sources here:


This is a preview release. We are gratefully welcoming any testers and feedback to polish it further for the final 4.1 release which will probably happen around mid October. Please put the reports on the usual places, e.g. http://bugs.kde.org. If you are interested in the (quite long) list of changes, look into the tarballs again for an extensive git changelog. If you just want a few highlights: Git Support Plugin, External Script Plugin, general polishing, CPP support improvements, lots of bug fixes, UI polishing, performance improvements, … you name it :)

For the fun of it, here the list of commits changes for 4.1 (imo far too big to show anything useful):

Thanks as always to the KDevelop team for making this possible and to the users for giving us valuable feedback.


PS: Sorry that I forgot to announce this yesterday or even Friday, as I initially planned. Well, weekends are such a nice time to go outside and enjoy life :)
