New in version 3.21.

The list() command now detects invalid indices.

Prior to CMake version 3.21, the list() command's GET, INSERT, SUBLIST, and REMOVE_AT subcommands did not detect invalid index arguments.

The OLD behavior of this policy is for invalid indices to be treated as their integer value (if any) at the start of the string. For example, 2good4you is a 2 and not_an_integer is a 0. The NEW behavior is for invalid indices to trigger an error.

This policy was introduced in CMake version 3.21. It may be set by cmake_policy() or cmake_minimum_required(). If it is not set, CMake warns, and uses OLD behavior.


The OLD behavior of a policy is deprecated by definition and may be removed in a future version of CMake.
