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."

I'd like to try it out, but i don't feel like compiling it and no ubuntu packages seem to be available.

Trying out new software in linux sure is a drag...
At least qtcreator has a binary installer that works well..

Ubuntu sucks for all kinds of KDE software. The packages receive less testing.

Wouldn't be if all software developers used Build Service and let it create packages for all popular distros more or less automatically.

Oh that's all it takes? No testing and tweaking needed for the other distros? I can build a program in Qt and not have to worry about it having problems in a Gnome based distro?
