If anybody finds a "dead" or dormant project in this list, I'll be glad to flag it that way.

dead - no update/news in over 2 years
dormant - no update/news in over 6 months
alive - update in about 6 months
active - frequent updates

Obviously this involves more work, but if somebody could help with this, it would be useful ot add this info.

A category "mature" would be good too. Something that looks dead or dormant, but it is really finished and there is nothing to do. I don't think any of this software falls under that category, though

I think Dev C++ is pretty much dead. Although there is news, I don't think anything has come out in a long long time. There was some discussion on the Code::Blocks forums about guys leaving Dev C++.

It's unfortunate, because Dev C++ is a very nice package and they include MINGW and some other stuff to make one stop shopping (for Winbloze users, anyway). I personally feel that Dev CPP is usable (especially for guys starting out in C++ that need a good learning environment and a nice IDE (everything is written in Delphi)) although I don't use C++ for anything serious so I'm not the best judge of it. The user community is also helpful if a little fragmented.

Maybe some other guys have some comments or more info.

That's a good point. Emacs should be in this category (whether they actually do anything or not is not the issue- they should have stopped a long time ago )

Clarification: when I meant dead or dormant I didn't mean actual updates, but news from the project. I think we can say a project is dead when the developers don't even bother providing news updates once in a year.

If we get started with tagging this list, can anybody provide any info on the items in the existing list?

How about adding a list of debuggers or degugger interfaces?
Also how about people actually saying what they think of the IDE? I know this is subjective, but so's most things in life.

That's a good question- is there anything available besides GDB, DDD, and GVD? The functionality is fine but the GUI interfaces are all hideous. It would be nice to find something really pleasant looking and easier to use.

The best thing with an IDE (or any app) is just to try it out. If you have problems with certain features or lack of features, ask about it and sometimes people can tell you how to make it work like you want or tell you another way of using it that will be more effective.

Something has to feel right to the guy using it before he gets the most benefit from it. The good news is it's all free and you don't have to make an expensive mistake trying something out.

I'm thinking the same. Are there so many free debuggers to justify an additional list. I don't mind some suggestions as I've never used stand-alone debuggers before.

One feature about it that is kind of nice is that you can tear off the menus.
Hey Taylor,

How much different is the look than the "standard" Emacs? Do you have any screenshots?

Thanks,
Rand

Great!!
And Netbeans is the best Java IDE on earth. With the Netbeans 5.0, NetBeans beat Eclipse in Java IDE although Eclipse might be a better generic IDE framework.

You can add C/C++ to the supported languages by NetBeans
In the freeware section, you can add:
Java Studio Enterprise - Solaris/Linux/Windows - Java
Java Studio Creator - Solaris/MacOS/Linux/Windows - Java
Sun Studio - Solaris & Linux - C/C++/Fortran

That IDE is probably big money and for sure not open source or "Free Software". Don't they have a Linux version?

You are right Randux, it costs much bludy bucks, but if we gon a purchase its linux version, we also have to spend much more bludy bucks, so the better option is to go with the free IDE, and that is why i am looking for the free IDE.

Do u have any idea about that kind of IDE, which doesn't costs us much bludy bucks.

Thanks,
Nishant
