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."

Qt Creator is missing some useful features. And it really makes signals and slots a pain. I can't create the on the fly and have the code be generated. I basically have to go to three different places to do something as simple as making a button quit the application. I miss that from Visual Studio. Also missing is good code auto-formatting (you can't configure it, so you are stuck with their annoying style), refactoring support, project structure browsing (not just file browsing) and so on. But it does look nice and for a basic IDE, it's pretty solid. Doesn't really have any crashes or glaring bugs. It's just short on features.

WOW, as I'm reading your post I have to ask myself if you are using all the features. Qt Creator allows you to add a UI to your project then when you open your newly added UI file you can add buttons, layouts, spacers to it. After that you can click on the edit slots icon and drag and connect slots. You can even write a simple GUI app without writing a single line of code. I'm sure if I was manually creating everything with code Qt Creator would be difficult to use for that. but I find Qt Creator to be one of the highest quality, intuitive IDEs I have ever used. maybe I'm not understanding something. I may not use Qt Creator as extensively as you have and maybe that is why I'm not understanding where you are coming from. I hope this does not sound confrontational, I'm just interested in your point and why you would say what you said.

The 2.0 beta seems to work as expected, but I couldn't get the older versions to behave that way.
