Name: KDevPlatform
Description: KDevPlatform is a code-base for KDE-applications focused on development. It provides abstract interfaces for the management of projects, compilation, debugging, source-code-analyzing, source-code-editing, version-control-systems and any plugin you can imagine for such stuff. These APIs are very straight-forward and easy to use. KDevPlatform-plugins can be used in every application using KDevPlatform, for example KDevelop, Quanta, Kile and in future Gluon Creator (unfortunatey Plasmate does not use KDevPlatform). Some basic features which should be available in all those applications are also available: The mainwindow, a common user interface to manage projects and sessions and to display information which was extracted from source-code using a language-support-plugin, Kate-integration, some plugins for file-management (Konsole, quickopen...) and SVN support.
