Kate in KDE 4.7

Now that the next version of the KDE platform is branched, it’s time to have a look at all the changes in Kate in KDE 4.7.

Current State of Kate

  • In KDE 4.6, we replaced the document list by the new File Tree. We got relatively few critical reports, meaning that the file tree seems to work pretty well for the majority.
  • Kate has two GSoC projects at the moment: Rewrite of the code folding, and Improving Kate’s vi mode. The work done in both projects will be available in KDE 4.8, so we are already working on the next major KDE release.
  • About 6 Kate developers are present at the annual KDE conference.
  • A year ago, the Kate homepage was redesigned. Looking back the last year, we can say that this has been a success.

Just in case you missed it: you can read about Kate’s state 6 months ago here.
