I’m happy to announce the availability of a second stabilization update for the 1.5 series of kdev-python, the Python language support plugin for the KDevelop development environment. See the 1.5 announcement for more information.
The kdev-python 1.5 series is compatible with KDevelop 4.5 (kdevplatform 1.5) and is suitable for working with Python 2.x source code.
If you’re only interested in using (as opposed to packaging or developing) kdev-python, you should consider installing kdev-python from your distribution’s package manager instead of downloading the source code.

Changes in this release (relative to 1.5.1):
- Fix a bug which led to the PEP8 checker running on non-python files in some cases
- Properly support unicode docstrings (thanks to Alexandr Zamaraev)
- Fix a crash in code completion which happened in some rare cases
- Fix a crash which could happen when a list comprehension was used as the default value for a function parameter
This is a small update containing only the above 4 bug fixes; all users are urged to switch to the new version as soon as it becomes available in their distribution.
There will be a larger update containing various cool new features in a few weeks, so stay tuned!
