Dr Konqi now with colors (Updated)
Hey there :)
As I announced on the kde-core-devel mailing list, I planned to improve Dr Konqi for a long time, as for me as a developer it is an invaluable tool. Well, yesterday I sat down and implemented the first two things which I wanted for a long time:
Scroll to KCrash
Once the backtrace got loaded, Dr Konqi will automatically scroll to the line that contains
[KCrash Handler]. No need to find that manually anymore. Awesome :)
Yeah, you should know that I as a KDevelop user and developer am addicted to syntax highlighting. That’s what I did for Dr Konqi as well now:

So anyone using KDEBase trunk will now have a shiny Dr Konqi :) Feedback appreciated, esp. whether more or less should be highlighted. I personally found it overly colorful when I also highlighted pointer adresses (ignore the bug in that outdated screenshot). What do you think?
Anyhow, thanks to George Kiagiadakis for helping me find my way through Dr Konqi sources and accepting my feature additions.
I put some more feedback into reality: Fixed width font, null pointers are bold and in addition common functions that lead to exits are now highlighted in red (i.e.
