“First run wizard” or check installation feature

Description: To check for - and if feasible, correct - common setup problems.

Points for discussion / issues: Run for each new version. No way to install external software, yet.

Integration of kate plugins

Description: Many useful plugins, e.g. search in files, are available from kate. RKWard should be able to embed these.

Development status: Done.

Testing status: N/A

Bring enhanced code hinting features to the R Console window

Description: Script editor windows have much improved code hinting abilities, now. Merge these into the R Console window.

Points for discussion / issues: I’m not quite happy with the behavior e.g. when typing “?print", yet (requires twice)

Development status: Done.
