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. CMake is quite sophisticated: it
is possible to support complex environments requiring system
configuration, pre-processor generation, code generation, and template
CMake was developed by Kitware as part of the NLM Insight
Segmentation and Registration Toolkit project. The ASCI VIEWS project
also provided support in the context of their parallel computation
environment. Other sponsors include the Insight, VTK, and VXL open
source software communities.

cmake ( unstable; urgency=low
* New upstream tweak release:
- this release fixes tests which used to fail when cmake build path
contained regex metacharacters. As a result, cmake should no longer FTBFS
on Debian buildds which have '+' symbol in the build path.

cmake (2.8.9~rc1-1) unstable; urgency=low
* New upstream release.
* Remove patches, merged upstream:
- backport_findpkgconfig_set_found_variable.diff;
- backport_module_no_soname.diff;
- manpage_fixes.diff.
* Drop cmake-{qt,curses}-gui.lintian-overrides, not needed with newer lintian.
* Enable hardening flags (by appending CPPFLAGS to C(XX)FLAGS).
2012-05-02 - Modestas Vainius <>
cmake (2.8.8-3) unstable; urgency=low
* Backport a no-soname feature from CMake (2.8.9) master tree. Just set a
NO_SONAME property on the shared library or module target in order to skip
addition of the SONAME field to the shared object. This makes it possible to
build Debian Python policy compliant modules with CMake. (Closes: #668982)
