Hey all, just a quickie: KDevelop 4.4.1 is available!

It comes with mostly crash fixes and a few other bug fixes. I’d say: use it!

» KDevelop 4.4.0 Welcomes You!

Tue, 10/23/2012 - 17:32

Hey everyone!

A first broadcast from the joint KDevelop/Kate sprint! Many thanks already to Joseph for planning this all. As you can see, we also have net access and thus nothing can prevent a very productive week :)

Anyhow, back to the actual news: I finally announced the release of KDevelop 4.4.0. Many thanks to all involved again.

Mind you though, the change list is a bit sparse this time. Yet I’m really looking forward to the 4.5 release already. I’ll blog about it in the next days during the sprint. Stay tuned!

» KDevelop 4.4.0 Beta 1 Released

Tue, 08/14/2012 - 18:01

Hey all!

After quite some slacking on my side, I’ve finally managed to drop the good news: KDevelop 4.4.0 Beta 1 is released!

Our 4.4 branch already contains some more interesting changes for the next beta, stay tuned. Oh and yeah, we’ll try to release 4.4.0 final sometime in September, I hope.

Cheers

» KDevelop 4.3.0 - Go Get It!

Tue, 03/20/2012 - 13:21

Finally I managed to get my job as the release dude done: http://kdevelop.org/kdevelop/kdevelop-430-final-released-basic-c11-support

Thanks to all the developers who sent in patches! The same goes to our loyal users for their continued support and bug reports :)

It’s really fun to work on KDevelop and - I’ve said it many times before - I’m really looking forward to our next releases! Even now our code in the master branches has some neat commits that make the eventual 4.4 release something to look forward to!

» KDevelop 4.3.0 RC 1 Released

Sat, 02/25/2012 - 18:45

Hey all!

Please help us test KDevelop 4.3 RC1! Grab it while it’s hot: http://kdevelop.org/43/kdevelop-430-rc-1-released

This release comes with some more bug fixes and better support for some C++11 language features.

Cheers!

» KDevelop 4.3.0 Beta 2 Released

Tue, 02/14/2012 - 15:10

Hey all!

I’ve just posted the news on the KDevelop website: KDevelop 4.3.0 Beta 2 is released!

Please test it and report feedback as usual. I think it’s safe to assume that we will release 4.3.0 final in about 2-4 weeks from now.

Considering that my university semester is nearing its end, I will finally have more royal hacking time again! I’ll continue to squash bugs and improve the performance of KDevelop of course :) Most definitely I’ll try to further improve the C++11 support. But maybe I finally have some time again to work on “something bigger”, like helping Miha Čančula in writing a kick-ass unit-test integration for KDevelop (see unittest branches). Then I plan to finally release some more of our “playground” plugins, most notably CSS language support and QMake project management…

Stay tuned for a bright KDevelop future :]

PS: I’ll step up as a mentor for a KDevelop GSOC this year, yet I’m still wondering about a proper topic… Ideas?

» KDevelop 4.2.3 Released

Mon, 06/27/2011 - 02:05

Hey all!

I wanted to quickly notify you all about the availability of KDevelop 4.2.3, you can download it here:

http://download.kde.org/download.php?url=stable/kdevelop/4.2.3/src/

Most people should be fine with waiting for updated packages from their distributor though.

To read the full release notes and take a look at the changelog, please visit the project website:

Many thanks to the contributors, for making this release possible

» Why can I not clone myself yet?

Sun, 01/30/2011 - 01:54

Saturday night and I’m not going out. What the hell is wrong with me — you (and I) ask?

Sad truth is: I’m swamped with work currently. Today I sat down and finished the last protocol of a university lab course, so at least that is done for now.

Bachelor Thesis

I’m not a slacker (even though I’d like to be one!) so I also recently started working on my Bachelor thesis. I’m doing something on EPR simulations, esp. pulse EPR with “big” molecules. It’s actually pretty interesting and I already learned tons of stuff. Most notably I could finally try out Eigen. It’s as good as I imagined, and probably even better ;-) My mentor at the university, who used BLAS up to now, is amazed by the readability of code you write. It is often nearly a one-to-one mapping of a mathematical formula to code. Since I personally never learned the BLAS interface, and find it’s API hideous, I’m very pleased to be able to use Eigen from the start. Thanks to Gael and Benoit (and the others) for writing it. Since I like living on the edge, I use Eigen 3 already and - to give something back - started to update the benchmarks for them.

Anyways, back to my thesis. If anyone is interested in the code and would like to give feedback, you can find it here: https://github.com/milianw/bachelor

I really enjoy to get to know yet another different world in programming. As you might know, I started as a web developer back then. Server backend PHP programming is totally different from user interface JavaScript programming is totally different from Desktop application programming using Qt/KDE/C++… And now there is computational science… So far I never had to care about rounding errors in code I write. Nor did I estimate memory consumptions in dozens of GigaBytes or thought about how many hours my app would need to crunch the numbers on hundreds of CPU cores. It really is quite an experience.

KDevelop
I'm going to FOSDEM, the Free and Open Source Software Developers' European Meeting

So, between two days working for KDAB (which I greatly enjoy) to earn some money, and three days of - interesting - thesis reasearch, and the usual real life, where is the time for KDevelop? It’s diminished, I have to admit. Today I finally got around to at least get the release announcement for KDevelop 4.2 finished and handed it to the Dot editors. But other than the occasional commit reviewing or bug triaging, I did not do much these past weeks.

This makes my really sad, as I’m passionate about KDevelop. One more reason to look forward to FOSDEM 2011, as I’ll do a lightening talk on KDevelop this time. And of course I hope to get some first grade hacking time in Brussels :) Oh this reminds me, I should get my talk prepared until tomorrow - hm :)

Anyways, I bet I’m not the only one who would like to clone himself to get more finished. Sadly it’s not possible yet (and the waiting list for people-to-be-cloned in KDE is quite long, and dominated by names like David Faure and Dario Andres anyways ;-) ). So take my ramblings with a grain of salt :)
