New in version 3.12.
Do not produce legacy
_LIB_DEPENDS cache entries.
Ancient CMake versions once used
<tgt>_LIB_DEPENDS cache entries to
propagate library link dependencies. This has long been done by other
means, leaving the
export_library_dependencies() command as the
only user of these values. That command has long been disallowed by
CMP0033, but the
<tgt>_LIB_DEPENDS cache entries
were left for compatibility with possible non-standard uses by projects.
CMake 3.12 and above now prefer to not produce these cache entries at all. This policy provides compatibility with projects that have not been updated to avoid using them.
OLD behavior for this policy is to set
NEW behavior for this policy is to not set them.
This policy was introduced in CMake version 3.12. Use the
cmake_policy() command to set it to
Unlike most policies, CMake version 3.21.7 does not warn
when this policy is not set and simply uses
OLD behavior of a policy is
deprecated by definition
and may be removed in a future version of CMake.
