Life cycle considerations

When deciding which minimum version of cmake shall be required by a particular project, it is always good to consider the operating system versions of your potential userbase. If your users cannot use the cmake version supplied by their linux distribution or software vendor, they might be less willing to try out newer versions of your project.


CMake versions available in several linux/UNIX distributions

The following table shows cmake versions available in several operating system releases. Only releases are shown that are still in service (i.e. are not marked as obsolete by their respective vendor). Distributions without clearly defined release versions ("rolling releases") are not included in this table.
