KDE "The KDevelop team is proud and happy to announce that KDevelop 4.0 is finally available as stable release. KDevelop comes with lots of innovative features, even though many features from the 3.5 series were dropped due to a nearly complete rewrite. In particular the developers have focused on building an excellent C++ IDE instead of trying to integrate lots of languages and features halfheartedly. Of course KDevelop 4 also builds an excellent basis for other languages, the best proof for that is the PHP plugin that is released alongside KDevelop 4.0. KDevelop 4.0 has an excellent C++ code understanding engine, which allows the IDE to understand your code better than you do, and which is then used to assist you by releasing you from tiresome tasks."

Ruby Support in KDevelop4

As a relative newcomer, I was using Kdevelop 3.x for my Ruby/Qt4 programming and it was BEAUTIFUL: well documented, easy to learn, and easy to use. I was making GUI apps with that combinatio inside of 2 months

While I was at first dismayed at the lack of "official" support for Ruby in KDevelop4; but there has been a LOT of really impressive other work being done by a number of folks (Richard Dale, Alexander Dymo, and others) to turn KDevelop into THE top notch non-Java based IDE for Ruby GUI desktop and Rails app development. There is a plugin I believe though it isn't officially stable, and the integrated Kate is a pretty sweet editor for Ruby on its own...

So all you Ruby folks wanting to use KDevelop4 for Ruby, keep your eyes peeled, as it is activelyt evolving...and give it a shot...I know I will be...
