The KDevelop team would like to announce the availability of KDevelop 3.0 Alpha 1 (also known as Gideon). This represents a complete redesign of KDevelop and includes tons of new features, and a new interface. Available through KDE ftp mirrors, the KDevelop web site and CVS, Gideon brings out the best in what an Integrated Development Environment should be. Users of KDevelop 2.x will notice substantial improvements, while new users will be amazed at the flexibility and extensibility put into this program. Improvements include: pluggable parts, rewritten Automake/Makefile.am support, support for more programming languages (Java, C, PHP, Perl, etc.), better code completion support, source code control integration, and more! Users wishing to experiment with these new features are encouraged to download this version and report bugs. Of course, the team is always looking for help. Screenshots: (1,2,3).
