KDevelop 5.0 Beta 2 and 4.7.3 Releases!

Hey all!

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!

(probably not the best place to post this, but filing a bunch of bugs also feels so overly-official — someone else has made basically the same comment on the release-announcement page as well) From a packager’s point of view, the 4.7.3 release is a bit annoying:

  • the tarballs are .bz2 while the previous release used .xz (this means more churn in terms of figuring out “where are the sources”?)
  • the kdevelop-php-docs tarballs are missing the po-files (did you forget to run before tarring? this means there’s no translations for this release of the php-docs)
