The Projects plugin in Kate just gained a context menu for the tree view that shows several git tools, if available:
Clicking will open the corresponding application in the correct working directory. Currently, only gitk, qgit and git-cola are supported. If you want more git integration, you probably have to use KDevelop or QtCreator
The project plugin in kate.git master has now the ability to call cppcheck.
This is just hacked in at the moment and needs more love, but it works.
Feel free to contribute integration of other code checkers, cppcheck is only the first, I hope 😉

Most of the following work was done during the yearly KDE conference and especially the joint Kate/KDevelop meeting this October in Vienna. A massive bug database cleanup was performed mainly by Christoph, so we closed several hundreds of bug reports, where ~280 are really fixed. So we are down to a total of 400 reports (only 70 of these 400 reports are bugs), where we initially had > 800 open issues. This also is reflected in the Kate bug charts:
Thanks to all contributors to make yet another release rock! And as always: We are happy for every contribution, so check out the Kate sources and send us patches! We hope you enjoy using Kate as much as we enjoy its development
