While I admire the fact that kipr is keeping up with the times, is there a do-or-die need for such a new version? The only distro that I know of that supports 2.8.12 OTB is Fedora 19. All ubuntu and debian distros, along with their respective derivatives such as eOS and Crunchbang require updating a semi-important package that sometimes should be left alone. Is something like 2.8.12 necessary?

2.8.12 is necessary for Qt5 and CMake/Qt automoc AFAIK. It may be possible to remove automoc and roll back a few build versions, but it'll probably still be 2.8.10+. Nafis is the current developer/maintainer. Any input @nzrock95?

We've had some other linux users voice similar complaints... Since we don't provide official linux binaries (not KIPR's primary market), it'd be nice to ease the build procedure.

Yeah, CMake 2.8.12 may have been a little overkill. I didn't think much of it because it was really easy to build, but it still isn't the most convenient.

CMake 2.8.9 is recommended for Qt 5, but 2.8.3+ should work. I think we'll still get automoc in 2.8.6+, so if 2.8.6 is the preferred version, let's roll back to it.
