Autumn is here (wait, this is GSoC, not GoT)

I just watched the season 7 finale of Game of Thrones earlier today, I couldn't help it, sorry. So, as summer is coming to an end, Google Summer of Code is also wrapping up, and the KDevelop Rust plugin is looking good at this point. It now supports semantic highlighting, go-to-definition, renaming declarations, some code completion, debugging, highlighting code errors, and code formatting. I'll go into a bit more detail for the last three since they were the most recent additions.  I also focused on a lot of minor improvements this past month to make the plugin easier to build and use, to make it more reliable, etc., so at this point kdev-rust is a solid basis for anyone looking for a Rust IDE. Debugging As I've mentioned before, KDevelop supports both the GDB and LLDB backends, so debugging was a matter of hooking up the backend for Rust executables. Here it is in action: Video should appear here; if it doesn't click here Code formatting
