Code::Blocks comming soon

The long anticipated IDE for C/C++ and other development tools, is just around the corner...

On the Code::Blocks home page (it even runs on a new server with a new web page design), it is mentioned that the long awaited RC 3 will be released shortly, officially!
I have been waiting on this for a long time now, and can't wait to be able to have a stable and installable version of Code::Blocks.

Code::Blocks is a multi-purpose (GPL 3) IDE for compiler-driven languages and frameworks. It is backed by wxWidgets as its core GUI library, and is also available for c++ development with a built in GUI Editor for wxWidgets projects. It runs on Windows and Linux (probably MacOS as well), gives you the ability to choose which compiler you want to use, has excellent GDB debugging features and the long awaited full implementation of the c/c++ code completion in the editor. Well, unfortunately I can't say how well any of the above will work or perform until a test-run is made on the official release, but I am sure it won't be disappointing.

You can look at this page to see more features that Code::Blocks brings.

We just need to be patient for a few more days!
