Second Alpha of KDevelop 3.0 (aka Gideon) is Out

The KDevelop team would like to announce the availability of KDevelop 3.0 Alpha 2, codenamed Gideon (screenshot). This release fixes many bugs since Alpha 1 was released over a month ago and adds a few minor features to the mix. Users of KDevelop 2.x will notice substantial improvements and are encouraged to begin upgrading so that new bugs can be identified and squashed. Both 2.x and 3.0 should work along side each other. See the KDevelop web site or the previous dot article for more information.

care to explain how ?

It would help clean the code, impose order, find bugs, etc ... if the entire base kde and libs "project" could be sucked out of CVS and fiddled with in KDevelop ... compiled, run, profiled, and debugged??


.... I thought so.....

Can the entire *BSD kernel be handled in the same way??? (I say BSD cuz it's well organized code ... there's no way KDevelop could ever be a developers "front end" for the linux kernel).

sorry, the grammar police will now shoot you ...

Just use Project-->GenerateProjectFile from the main menu of KDevelop and all existing projects (also BSD kernel, KDElibs) should be wrapped by a KDevelop project (of type "Custom Project"). An appropriate .kdevprj or .kdevelop file will be created.
I already did that for some of the KDE projects, mainly kdelibs/kdeui.

This is already possible with KDevelop-2.1.x.

Does anyone know if KDev3.0 will support multiple projects loaded in a workspace similar to Visual Studio or KDE Studio Gold? Not just multiple build targets in a project.

it is working fine in 2.x.x releases, though, therefore i wonder how to enable it?
i built an deb package from the sources using 'dpkg-buildpackage' and installed it, but despite displayed as an option in the "project settings" it doesn't work yet.

Any suggestions, folks?
