the download page does not seems to contain it yet.

Try updating your browser. It appears to be there for me. If not, please clarify what “it” is.

Perfect, thanks.

Hopefully a quick one -
I scanned the release notes and the file too, but didn’t see anything specific about how the cmake system has been updated or what changes may be needed for downstream usage.

The use case is compiling plugins. Now getting this error message:

CMake Error at CMakeLists.txt:16 (include):
  include called with wrong number of arguments.  include() only takes one

The offending lines:

# Simple discovery and sanity checks
find_package(ParaView REQUIRED)


Mark, some updates to the plugin documentation are available in the doxygen docs:

A transition guide is slated for real soon now, but this should get you started.

Thanks Cory!
I’ll bide my time a bit still. It seems that a fair number of things have changed in the cmake files. add_paraview_plugin() etc, exports for VTK_INCLUDE_DIRS etc.


Indeed, the build system was completely revamped in VTK and ParaView. More complete documentation and migration documentation is planned in the near future.
