KDevelop 4.1 adds Git support
Following more than one thousand commits after version 4.0 arrived earlier this year, the KDevelop development team has released the first point update to the 4.x branch of its C++ integrated development environment (IDE). According to the developers, the latest version of the open source IDE includes several performance improvements, a number of new features and addresses more than 150 bugs found in the previous release.
KDevelop 4.1 can now publish changes using email, pastebin or ReviewBoard and features the addition of native support for the Git distributed version control system – version 4.0 already included SVN and CVS integration. The current release also includes various new plug-ins that allow users to, for example, run arbitrary shell commands or external tools directly from inside the IDE via the external scripts plug-in. Other changes include support for PHP 5.3, Hex Editor updates and a function that allows users to import remote projects and start working on them directly.
More details about the release, including a full list of new features and screenshots, can be found in the official release announcement. KDevelop 4.1 is available to download as GPL licensed source code from the projects website.
