General Development "Looking past the Metro hype, the Build conference also revealed promising road maps for C#, Visual Studio, and the .Net platform as a whole. Perhaps the most exciting demo of the conference for .Net developers, however, was Project Roslyn, a new technology that Microsoft made available yesterday as a Community Technology Preview. Roslyn aims to bring powerful new features to C#, Visual Basic, and Visual Studio, but it's really much more than that. If it succeeds, it will reinvent how we view compilers and compiled languages altogether."

nope KDevelop uses its own parser (which is also uses by QtCreator and some of the Qt/KDE bindings). They tried to use gcc-xml, but for some reason it was not working so well.

Probably it didn't deal with syntax errors the way that dynamic editor requires. Anyway with GCC you have access to intermediate representation that is common to all language frontends and can use it to utilize GCC optimizer for your own languages.
