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."

RE: And QtCreator ?

Member since:

I don't know why there is so much IDEs, why not choosing one and making it perfect rather than losing time building many ?

KDevelop is a pure community project, while Qt Creator development is paid by Nokia (with some community contributions as well). KDevelop was there first, Qt Creator ("Greenhouse" back then) was announced during KDevelop 4 cycle.

There was some controversy about why Qt Creator had to be started (instead of contriburing to KDevelop), you can google it up.
