Support for major buildsystems


  • make, MSVC, XCode, Eclipse, KDevelop3, CodeBlocks


  • Some generic file format, maybe XML based, so that it would be easy to process. Maybe ant may be a good candidate. This might also help the Java support in CMake. Any takers ?

Support for programming languages

Fully supported:

  • C, C++
  • Fortran (CMake >= 2.6.0)
    • Watch out for mix of free-form / fixed form src code ([1])

More or less fully supported:

Not supported:

The languages listed here don't have built-in support in CMake, still they can be used via ADD_CUSTOM_COMMAND()

  • C#: would be nice to have
  • Pascal: shouldn't be too hard, volunteers ?
  • OCaml: really strange to build, may be hard to integrate

Operating systems


  • all major OSs, except the ones listed below

Not supported:

CMake language features

  • some way to define custom command line arguments
  • fine grained flags (per source etc.), AFAIK is being worked on
  • per-target or per-file include dirs and compile flags (being worked on AFAIK)
  • better (PCRE) regexps, is being worked on
  • abstraction of compiler flags (being worked on ?)
