Yes, I was testing it under KDE4.
Yes, It did install the qscintilla dependency.
IIRC Eric IDE also uses qscintilla and the editor looks good there. But in 
case of kscope, it looked ugly. No line number, no highlighting, no colors.

And also, there was no Navigator/Explorer like in KScope 3 (1.6.x).

Elad, I hope I'm not asking for too much. But kate in KDE is an actively 
maintained application. And now KDE is on Windows/Mac also.
Do you think the switch to qscintilla is worth it?
Depending on Kate brings all of Kate's power to Kscope. For eg, we can get the 
recent Vim mode of Kate (Part of Kate of KDE4) in Kscope if kscope uses the 
kate editor. Just a thought.

And thank you for KScope. I use it a lot. :-)

PS: I still use KScope 3 in KDE4. KScope only has the libkate dependency. So I 
just extracted and installed those libs in my /usr/local folder.
