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."

No, it does not, not that way, at least. UML in visual studio was pushed in Visio the last time I checked, it was not native and interactive.


It does not have it for c++, but it is there for c# and I guess for other .net languages (like VB). It is not complete but sufficient and well integrated.

Completion is not there at all, it's not in the same league, end of the line.


There is some, but bad. Yet visual assist will provide a very good one (NOT FREE)

Syntax highlighting in VS is not better than Notepad++ (last time I checked was VS.Net 2008, I have not tried 2010 yet)


Again Visual Assist

And the documentation in KDevelop is integrated in the completion, not only the header and doxygen @name, the whole doc.


I could not find a free and very good plugin for doxygen, but if you pay, or/and you are willing to use something based on XML you will find it.

I'm not saying that VS is batter. I didn't try KDevelop 4, but the 3 was not so good as VS+Visual Assist.
Anyway NetBeans and Eclipse are batter than VS (at least in standard configurations), QT is the best for small projects, but has problems managing big ones, and KDevelop4, don't know but I trust those who are saying it is the best non-java IDE.
