This new release has seen lots of work from various contributors. In the following we highlight a few noteworthy items but this list is by far not complete. Try out the new release and see for yourself!
The new C++ standard, which was released last year, is now partially suppported in KDevelop. At least the parser should not trip over new language features such as initializer lists, lambdas, range-based for loops or variadic templates. Similarily, explicitly defaulted or deleted methods, auto, rvalue-references and many more features are supported. Many of the new stdlib classes can be used as well. We have to admit though, that the C++11 support is by far not complete yet, and we will continue to work on improving it in future releases.
