Version 3.1 of the CMake build system is now available with various improvements.

For Windows users, CMake 3.1 brings support for the Windows Phone and Windows Store. This support is available with the Microsoft Visual Studio 2012 and newer generators. There's also NVIDIA Nsight Tegra support for Visual Studio 2010 and newer generators.

Outside of the Windows improvements is a new target_compiler_features command to populate target-based compile features. The syntax for variable references and escape sequences was also simplified. CMake's CPack also now supports 7Z and TXZ generators for yielding LZMA-compressed archives.
