CMake is an open-source, cross-platform family of tools designed to build, test and package software.
CMake is now required to generate CMaNGOS project on Windows too. It’s a change that was asked and discussed long time ago.
Adding a step before to be able to build was not a priority. That’s why we kept provided sln so long time on the core.
With that change we are able to generate projects same way in all supported os and also we don’t have to provide an updated project file for each Visual Studio version.
We know that some of you may need some help to handle that CMake . Fortunately CMake gui is not so hard to handle and require minimal learning.
CMaNGOS build steps are updated and available here. We also added some video with the most important one is below.
