CppCMS 1.x.x moves to CMake

Thursday, November 12, 2009, by artyom ; Posted in: Progress, Framework; 0 comments

No, I don't think that CMake is better then autotools. In fact I still think that CMake is total "crap". It has terrible cache policy, it has broken configuration_file support. It is crappy documentation and many broken configuration tools like CheckTypeSizeOf... and much more.

But it supports MSVC (that I may think supporting in future) and has a better Windows support... So I announce that next version of CppCMS would use CMake (and it already uses in re-factoring branch).

Autotools build system is no longer supported and will be removed from the CppCMS 1.x.x branch, because I do not really like supporting two build systems.

I hope CppCMS users would understand this terrible move.
