Update documentation for supported OSes, required libraries, and CMake options #9074

merged 4 commits into from Apr 21, 2021

@TrueBrain TrueBrain commented Apr 21, 2021

Motivation / Problem

Docs were out of date. I am trying to fix them a bit.

Closes #9054 , as it is an alternative to it.
Fixes #8465 again. As I changed my opinion on the matter.


Bit of a mixed bag, but:

  • We listed we officially supported some OSes I am pretty sure we haven't compiled in months / years. So lets drop the act. If they work on those OSes, great! If people want to make PRs for them: awesome! But .. "officially" supported is stretching it.
  • Libraries didn't indicate when they were useful. #9054 tried to address some of it, but it was outdated anyway. This should be more correct (I hope :D).
  • CMake options we created were not really documented, making it hard for someone to find them. Be a bit more upfront about them. #8465 already suggested this, but I was too blind to see this is useful.
  • Some links were pointing to redirects, instead of the final destination.

Did you mean to use #9054 in lieu of #9045?

I'd add a line after the "supported platforms" that

Other platforms may also work (in particular various BSD systems), but we don't actively test or maintain these.
