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."

-Semantic autocompletion


If qt creator doesn't have semantic autocompletion, what does it have instead? Do you have an example of what kdevelop can complete, and qt creator cannot?

It completes pretty much everything for me (and has more "convenience" completions than most, like #include completion, signature completion for function definitions in cpp files, signal/slot completion...)

Try it, it's free ;)

But it is more the way it autocomplete. It is not syntax completion or dictionary/index based completion. Acording to KDevelop devs, the "duchain" parser understand the code instead of just completing it

I've used it.

Last time I tried it, it seemed to complete just like Qt Creator, i.e. correctly.

That's what Qt Creator does as well (ditto for Eclipse, visual studio...).
