Linux News Today: KDevelop 5.0 Open Source IDE Enters Beta, Ported to Qt 5 and KDE Frameworks 5
After more than a year of hard work, Milian Wolff from the KDevelop project has had the great pleasure of announcing the immediate availability for download and testing of the first Beta build of KDevelop 5.0.0.
According to the announcement, most parts of the upcoming KDevelop 5.0 open-source IDE (Integrated Development Environment) software have been ported to the next-generation KDE Frameworks 5 and Qt 5 technologies, and the legacy semantic analysis and C++ parser plugin has been replaced with a Clang-based one.
“After more than a year of continuous work by our community, I’m very pleased to finally announce the first beta release of KDevelop 5.0.0. This release is made up of hundreds of commits, and marks a huge step forward,” says Milian Wolff in the release notes of KDevelop 5.0.0 Beta.
Those of you who want to try KDevelop 5.0 can download the Beta build right now from Softpedia, just please try to keep in mind that this is a pre-release version, which contains unresolved issues. Thus, we don’t recommend using it on production systems.
