The development behind the open-source and cross-platform KDevelop IDE (Integrated Development Environment) was proud to announce on the first day of December the availability of the third point release for KDevelop 5.0 stable series.
KDevelop 5.0.3 arrives one and a half months after the second maintenance update, but it's a small bugfix release that attempts to patch a total of nine issues reported by users since then. However, it's a recommended update for all users.
"We are happy to announce the release of KDevelop 5.0.3, the third bugfix and stabilization release for KDevelop 5.0. An upgrade to 5.0.3 is strongly recommended to all users of 5.0.0, 5.0.1 or 5.0.2," reads the release announcement.
This first major update to last year's huge PHP 7.0 release builds several new features on top. Introduced by PHP 7.1 is nullable types, a void return type, a iterable pseudo-type, class constant visibility modifiers, support for catching multiple exception types, and many other language enhancements plus more performance optimizations and other work.
Astervoid 2000 [Steam, Official Site] was sent in by the developer and I've been testing out this multiplayer space brawler to see if it's worthy. It's surprisingly great actually! Mixing some lovely pixel art with sick tunes makes for an explosive experience.
I'm surprised by this one, as it has a single-player wave-based survival mode, as well as the multiplayer mode. In the single-player you are facing off against others on the high-score board as well and I've managed to hone my skills enough to get to #18.
The game was funded on Kickstarter where it was given $18,708 towards development. Linux was a stretch goal, but it was set at $15,000 so they gathered well over what they requested for a Linux version.
