KDE Releases KDevelop 4.6 93

New submitter KDE Community writes that the KDE project has released KDevelop 4.6.0 as the latest version of the free and open source integrated development environment. "KDevelop 4.6.0 improves debugging support with GDB. The GDB integration improvements include some operations now going into effect immediately rather than needing to re-run the program, improved debugging from external terminals, and a CPU registers toolview. KDevelopers' CPU registers toolview also allows for showing and editing all user-mode registers and general purpose flags for x86/x86_64/ARMv7 platforms. Other KDevelop 4.6.0 changes include greater language support within the PHP plug-in, Python language support improvements, more C++11 language support, improved project management, and a clean-up to the IDE's user-interface."

    I....guess i see.
  • Do they have a sane template selection yet? The last few times I've tried KDevelop, in order to get anything done in Java or C, I essentially had to roll my own.
    • I just assumed that anyone writing Java code would use Eclipse as their first choice. (But I'm not an expert Java coder.) Is there some reason to want to use KDevelop rather than Eclipse when coding Java?

      • That's the biggest failings of IDEs I think. They tend to want one IDE per language type; sometimes one IDE per language/OS pair as well as not all of them are portable.

  • Is Kdevelop and other KDE/Qt compiler tools now supportive of LLVM/Clang as well, or are they still just GCC only?
    • And yet another failing of IDEs, they tie themselves too tightly to the external tools that developers need. A good tool should be flexible and conform to the developer instead of assuming the developer will conform to the tool.

The world is coming to an end--save your buffers!
