KDevelop 4.2 Beta 1 released

Hey all,

I’m happy to announce the immediate availability of KDevelop 4.2 Beta 1. This is a testing version and any kind of feedback would be welcome and appreciated. Please use our bugtracker. You can download the sources or wait for your distribution to create packages.

Note: Anyone who runs KDE 4.6 or later needs this version (or any later). This is because the SmartRange interface in Kate got nuked and replaced with MovingRange interface. Many thanks to David Nolden for more or less single handedly porting KDevelop to this new architecture.

The good news doesn’t end here though, KDevelop 4.2 ships with lots of notable changes and new features:

Along with these big changes, lots of small improvements have been made and we will continue to polish and harden out this branch in order to give you a stable, fast KDevelop 4.2 soon. Considering the impact and amount of changes, testing would be very welcome in order to prevent regressions and similar in the final 4.2 version.

Bye and thanks again to all contributors who made this possible. I’m especially thrilled to welcome so many new people, well done!

Sorry, I haven’t found 4.2 beta on mirrors, all I have seen was 4.1.80 version. Are these sources what I need to compile to get 4.2 beta ? Thanks for great work! Waiting for release! :)

What’s the status of the plugins for programming languages other than C, C++ and PHP?

Python is being worked on. Css, XML are somewhat working but I don’t have any time for them right now. Anything else is unfinshed, abandoned, unmaintained sadly…

Hi. I work a lot with FORTRAN, using/changing/patching the code from where I study/work. I’ve been able to load small custom makefiles with KDevelop, and build the selections (since myself specified which compiler to use) and I think I can run the work if I specify the executable. I’m not a programer at all (I mean, I only understand FORTRAN and nothing else), but is there any way to help?
