I've recently been tasked with automating a build script on Windows, which includes building GLEW from source. The build script is for a set of Python 2.7 packages. Unfortunately, Python 2.7 extension modules are required to be built using Visual Studio 2008. Therefore, I need a solutions file that is compatible with Visual Studio 2008. I'd ideally like to grab the source directly from the GLEW site so that I know I'm getting the most up to date versions.

Therefore, I was wondering what the general feeling from the GLEW community is about moving to CMAKE? I have a CMAKE file that I'm using at the moment that I would be happy to flesh out and test on other major systems. The major benefit is that, particularly on systems like Windows, you don't need to keep shipping lots of different solution files for new Visual Studio releases.

Kind Regards,
