Hotspot is a GUI for Linux perf. It comes with an integrated flame graph and a powerful off-CPU profiling feature.
Heaptrack is a heap memory profiler for Linux. It's pretty fast, supports runtime-attaching and also comes with a feature-rich analysis GUI.
Hey all :)
I’ve finally managed to release heaptrack properly! The first stable release, i.e. v1.0.0 is available for download: https://download.kde.org/stable/heaptrack/1.0.0/src/
You can find more information on the official release announcement over on the KDAB page: https://www.kdab.com/heaptrack-v1-0-0-release/
If you want to read more about what heaptrack is, check out the README.md or have a look at the initial announcement of heaptrack, now three years old!
Cheers, happy profiling!
I’m happy to (finally!) announce the release of the latest stable versions of Massif-Visualizer and KGraphViewer:
Both versions come filled with bug fixes, cleanups and performance improvements. Everyone is urged to update!
Cheers and many thanks to all contributors.
I have the pleasure to announce the releases of two new KDevelop versions:
On one hand, there is the new and shiny KDevelop 5.0 Beta 2 release, which brings us much closer to a final release. Tons of issues have been resolved, many features got polished, and even our UI cleaned up a bit here and there. And did I mention impoved OS X and Windows support? See here for more:
Besides this new beta release, which is where most of our effort went into, I am also happy to announce KDevelop 4.7.3, a new bugfix release of our latest stable KDE 4 based KDevelop. Several annoying problems are resolved now, see the announcement for more information:
Many thanks to everyone involved!

I’m very glad to finally announce the first beta of KDevelop 5.0.0, based on Qt 5, KF 5 and Clang: https://www.kdevelop.org/news/first-beta-release-kdevelop-500-available
Like I’ve said previously, I’m very thankful of the tons of contributors that made this step possible. From the early testers, over the many new KDevelop contributors who helped a lot in porting our code base to Qt 5 and KF5, to the people that worked on improving kdev-clang and all the other areas. It’s a great feeling to finally release this beast. A year ago, just after we started in this process, I still wasn’t too sure we can pull it all off. Now, look where we are :) “Just” a few more weeks of polishing and I’m positively sure KDevelop 5.0.0 will be a really good milestone.
That said, I also want to express my thanks towards the KDE e.V. which graciously sponsored our recent KDevelop/Kate sprint in Berlin. We rented a flat for the 8 hackers that visited Berlin and had a productive five days directly after the Qt World Summit. Personally, I worked on kdev-clang and polished it a bit more in the preparation of the first beta release. One handy feature I added is the display of size information about classes and member variables, displayed in the image to the right.
I have the pleasure to attend Akademy this year again. From my past experience, I’m really looking forward to have a good time again. Lots of hacking, meeting known and unknown faces, drinking beer and socializing ahead! I also love that it’s in a (to me) new country again, and wonder what I will see of the Czech Republic and Brno!
This year, the conference schedule is a bit different from the past years. Not only do we have the usual two days packed with interesting talks and keynotes. No - this year there will also be workshops on the third day! These are more in-depth talks which hopefully teach the audience some new skills, be it QML, mobile development, testing, or … profiling :) Your’s truly has the honor to hold a one-hour Profiling 101 workshop.
