VC2019 / Visual Studio project configs for v142 compiler toolset #2113
@fei4xu we may think about that some time in the future, but up until now (and currently), very few Windows users are building via cmake - they all depend on the included VS project files, so we'll continue to supply them until that changes. A large part of this decision is that cmake-generated visual studio project files are difficult to hand tune, and are generally setup pretty poor compared to those we make by hand.
Using cmake directly in Visual Studio is interesting, although my attempts to use it have shown that it is still quite experimental, especially with more complex project structures.
