Autotools Support for Qt Creator

Openismus gave me the opportunity to write a autotools plugin for Qt Creator. The plugin is available for download at http://www.gitorious.org/qtcreator-autotools-plugin. Please check the README file for installation instructions.

The plugin allows to load an autotools project and offers the following functionality:
  • Syntax highlighting for Makefile.am files
  • Automatic project tree update if a Makefile.am file or the configure.ac file has been changed
  • Out of source builds
  • Configuration of build steps
  • Code completion
The project is in a very early state and has not been tested yet by a broad user base. Any feedback would be very welcome!

Would be nice have it ported to kdevelop :p!

Just tried it for Miniature - nice! Though I did not manage to get Qt Creator compiled inside scratchbox (no libqt4-designer for Qt >= 4.6), I could at least see it in action on the desktop.
