Subject Deprecating the autotools build system in favour of cmake
Date Fri, 15 Mar 2013 20:35:02 GMT

For a number of years now,  Qpid has had 2 build systems: one based on autotools 
(autoconf, automake etc.) and the other based on cmake. This causes duplication 
of effort and confusion.

Since the introduction of clearmake it was always the intent that we deprecate 
and eventually remove autotools, but this intent was not clearly stated and the 
INSTALL instructions were not updated, so many users are still using the 
autotools system.

As of the pending 0.22 release, autotools will be deprecated. The INSTALL 
instructions have been updated to describe the cmake system. The autotools 
configure script will also print a deprecation message.

Both autotools and cmake will be available for the 0.22 release to facilitate 
migration. The autotools system will be removed in a subsequent release.

Report any issues with migrating to autools to dev@qpid.apache.org.

Cheers,
Alan.
