CMake is a cross-platform, open-source build system.

CMake is a family of tools designed to build, test and package software.

CMake is used to control the software compilation process using simple platform and compiler independent configuration files.

CMake generates native makefiles and workspaces that can be used in the compiler environment of your choice.

This software is distributed in two modes:
  • as compressed package that you have to download and manually install; if prerequisites are required, you will have to manually install them too;
  • as RPM package; you can install it using your favorite rpm package manager, that will take care to download and install both the software and its prerequisites.
Choose the installation mode that you prefer. Please note that not all the versions are available in both the installation modes.

Installation with rpm

This program is installable using the rpm package manager. See below for the install string. Required prerequisites are automatically processed by the package manager and, if needed, downloaded and installed.

New Features Platforms CMake now supports Cross Compiling for Android with simple toolchain files. The Clang compiler is now supported on AIX. Generators The Ninja generator learned to conditionally support Fortran when using a ninja tool that has the necessary features. See generator documentation for details. The Ninja generator learned to produce phony targets of the form sub/dir/{test,install,package} to drive the build of a subdirectory installation, test or packaging target. This is equivalent to cd sub/dir; make {test,install,package} with Makefile Generators. The Visual Studio 15 2017 generator was added. This is experimental and based on “Visual Studio 2017 RC” because this version of VS has not been released. Visual Studio Generators for VS 2010 and above learned to place .natvis source files into VS project files properly. The Xcode generator’s rudimentary Swift language support learned to honor a new CMAKE_Swift_LANGUAGE_VERSION variable to tell Xcode what version of Swift is used by the source. The CodeLite generator gained a new CMAKE_CODELITE_USE_TARGETS option to change project creation from projects to targets. Commands The add_custom_command() command gained a new DEPFILE option that works with the Ninja generator to provide implicit dependency information to the build tool. The cmake_parse_arguments() command gained a new PARSE_ARGV mode to read arguments directly from ARGC and ARGV# variables inside a function() body. The export() command gained an ANDROID_MK option to generate files referencing CMake-built libraries as prebuilts for the Android NDK build system. The file(DOWNLOAD) and file(UPLOAD) commands gained HTTPHEADER <HTTP-header> and USERPWD <username>:<password> options. The find_library() and find_package() commands learned to search in lib32/ directories when the build targets a 32-bit architecture. See the FIND_LIBRARY_USE_LIB32_PATHS global property. The find_package() command gained the possibility of sorting compatible libraries by NAME or by NATURAL sorting by setting the two new variables CMAKE_FIND_PACKAGE_SORT_ORDER and CMAKE_FIND_PACKAGE_SORT_DIRECTION. The if() command gained new boolean comparison operations LESS_EQUAL, GREATER_EQUAL, STRLESS_EQUAL, STRGREATER_EQUAL, VERSION_LESS_EQUAL, and VERSION_GREATER_EQUAL. The install() command gained an EXPORT_ANDROID_MK subcommand to install files referencing installed libraries as prebuilts for the Android NDK build system. The string(TIMESTAMP) and file(TIMESTAMP) commands gained support for the %a and %b placeholders. These are the abbreviated weekday and month names. The try_compile() command source file signature now honors configuration-specific flags (e.g. CMAKE_<LANG>_FLAGS_DEBUG) in the generated test project. Previously only the default such flags for the current toolchain were used. See policy CMP0066. Variables Variable CMAKE_FIND_PACKAGE_SORT_ORDER was added to control the sorting mode of the find_package() command. Variable CMAKE_FIND_PACKAGE_SORT_DIRECTION was added to control the sorting direction the find_package() command. Toolchain files may now set a CMAKE_<LANG>_FLAGS_INIT variable to initialize the CMAKE_<LANG>_FLAGS cache entry the first time a language is enabled in a build tree. Toolchain files may now set CMAKE_EXE_LINKER_FLAGS_INIT, CMAKE_SHARED_LINKER_FLAGS_INIT, and CMAKE_MODULE_LINKER_FLAGS_INIT variables to initialize the CMAKE_EXE_LINKER_FLAGS, CMAKE_SHARED_LINKER_FLAGS, and CMAKE_MODULE_LINKER_FLAGS cache entries the first time a language is enabled in a build tree. Properties On Apple platforms the BUNDLE_EXTENSION target property now also applies to Frameworks and App Bundles. A BINARY_DIR directory property was added to get the absolute path to the binary directory corresponding to the source directory on which the property is read. A BUILDSYSTEM_TARGETS directory property was added to get the list of logical buildsystem target names added by the project in a directory. A LINK_WHAT_YOU_USE target property and supporting CMAKE_LINK_WHAT_YOU_USE variable were introduced to detect (on UNIX) shared libraries that are linked but not needed by running ldd -r -u. A SOURCE_DIR directory property was added to get the absolute path to the source directory associated with a directory. A SUBDIRECTORIES directory property was added to get the list of subdirectories added by a project in a directory. A VS_SDK_REFERENCES target property was added to tell Visual Studio Generators to reference the named SDKs. A VS_TOOL_OVERRIDE source file property was created to tell Visual Studio Generators what tool to use for a source file. The WINDOWS_EXPORT_ALL_SYMBOLS target property now applies to executable targets with the ENABLE_EXPORTS property set. A XCODE_FILE_ATTRIBUTES source file property was added to tell the Xcode generator to generate custom content in the Xcode project attributes for the file. Modules An AndroidTestUtilities module was added to manage transfer of test data to an Android device. The CheckFortranSourceCompiles module macro CHECK_Fortran_SOURCE_COMPILES gained a SRC_EXT option to specify a custom test Fortran source file extension. The ExternalProject module gained HTTP_USERNAME and HTTP_PASSWORD options to set http download credentials. The ExternalProject module gained a HTTP_HEADER option to add http download headers. The FindBISON module BISON_TARGET macro learned a new REPORT_FILE option to specify the bison --report-file= option. The FindBZip2 module now provides imported targets. A FindICU module was introduced to find the International Components for Unicode (ICU) libraries and programs. The FindMatlab module learned to find the SIMULINK and MAT components. The FindMatlab module matlab_add_mex() command learned to add executables and modules. The FindMatlab module matlab_add_unit_test() command learned to support inline Matlab test code. The FindOpenCL module now provides imported targets. The FindOpenMP module learned to detect the OpenMP version (specification date) from the compiler. A FindVulkan module was added. The GenerateExportHeader module learned a new CUSTOM_CONTENT_FROM_VARIABLE option to specify a variable containing custom content for inclusion in the generated header. The GNUInstallDirs module gained a new GNUInstallDirs_get_absolute_install_dir() command. The UseJava module gained APIs to “export” jar targets for use by external CMake projects. See the install_jar_exports and export_jars functions. CTest CTest now supports test fixtures through the new FIXTURES_SETUP, FIXTURES_CLEANUP and FIXTURES_REQUIRED test properties. When using regular expressions or --rerun-failed to limit the tests to be run, a fixture’s setup and cleanup tests will automatically be added to the execution set if any test requires that fixture. The ctest_configure(), ctest_build(), ctest_test(), ctest_coverage(), and ctest_upload() commands gained a new CAPTURE_CMAKE_ERROR option to capture any errors that occur as the commands run into a variable and avoid affecting the return code of the ctest(1) process. CPack CPack gained a productbuild generator on OS X, configured by the CPackProductBuild module. CPack gained a new CPACK_PACKAGE_CHECKSUM variable to enable generation of a checksum file for each package file. The CPackDeb module learned to support long file names when archive format is set to GNU tar. See CPACK_DEBIAN_ARCHIVE_TYPE The CPackIFW module gained a new cpack_ifw_add_package_resources() command to include additional resources in the installer binary. The CPackIFW module cpack_ifw_configure_component() and cpack_ifw_configure_component_group() commands gained a new USER_INTERFACES option to add a list of additonal pages to the IFW installer. The CPackRPM module learned to generate debuginfo packages on demand. See CPACK_RPM_DEBUGINFO_PACKAGE and its per component version. The CPackRPM module learned to generate source rpm (SRPM) packages on demand. See CPACK_RPM_PACKAGE_SOURCES, CPACK_RPM_SOURCE_PKG_BUILD_PARAMS and CPACK_RPM_SOURCE_PKG_PACKAGING_INSTALL_PREFIX. The CPack NSIS generator now supports CPACK_NSIS_<compName>_INSTALL_DIRECTORY. This can be used to set component specific installation directories. The CPack WIX generator now supports CPACK_WIX_SKIP_PROGRAM_FOLDER to allow specification of a custom absolute installation prefix outside of the ProgramFiles folders. The CPack WIX generator now supports CPACK_COMPONENT_<compName>_DISABLED. This can be used to deselect a component from being installed by default. The CPack WIX generator now supports CPACK_WIX_PATCH_FILE fragments for Feature elements. The CPack WIX generator now supports CPACK_WIX_ROOT_FEATURE_TITLE and CPACK_WIX_ROOT_FEATURE_DESCRIPTION to allow the specification of a custom title and description for the root feature element. Other cmake(1) gained a -E capabilities option to provide a machine-readable (JSON) description of the capabilities of the cmake tool (available generators, etc.). A new cmake-server(7) mode was added to provide semantic information about a CMake-generated buildsystem to clients through a JSON protocol. Currently all protocols are experimental and subject to change. The cmake(1) command learned a --trace-source=<file> option. ccmake(1) learned to support vim-like navigation bindings. cmake-gui(1) gained a button to open the generated project file for Visual Studio Generators and the Xcode generator. Deprecated and Removed Features We no longer provide Linux i386 binaries for download from for new versions of CMake. Vim support files cmake-indent.vim, cmake-syntax.vim, and cmake-help.vim have been removed in favor of the files now provided from the vim-cmake-syntax project. Support for building CMake itself with some compilers was dropped: Visual Studio 7.1 and 2005 – superseded by VS 2008 and above mingw32 – superseded by MSYS2 mingw32 and mingw64 CMake still supports generating build systems for other projects using these compilers. Other Changes The Fortran dependency scanner learned to support the syntax of Fortran Submodules. Vim support files indent/cmake.vim and syntax/cmake.vim from the vim-cmake-syntax project are now distributed with CMake.
