"The KDevelop Hackers are proud and happy to announce that
KDevelop 4.0 is finally available as a stable release. Released
together is the first version of KDevelop PHP plugins, which make
KDevelop a very interesting option for PHP developers.
"KDevelop 4.0 comes with lots of features already, even though
some things had to be dropped compared to the 3.5 series due to
time constraints. In particular we have focused on building an
excellent C++ IDE instead of trying to integrate lots of languages
halfheartedly. Of course it is still possible to add support for
more languages to KDevelop and we are confident that it is actually
easier than before: the best proof for that is the PHP plugin that
is released alongside KDevelop 4.0.
"Code navigation, syntax checking and more
"The major features for C++ support include code navigation,
which allows you to jump to declarations, and semantic
highlighting. Combined they make it much easier to grasp new code
bases and navigate in big code projects. Support for syntax
checking and semi-automatic code-correction with assistants is
included as well as code completion that supports classes,
functions, templates, variables and include statements."
