Any plans to move to VS2015?

I just joined the mailing list recently, so forgive me if the question has already been addressed. Any plans to move to VS2015 w/ the features they’re pushing it seems like a one IDE fits all/most targets situation.

I’ll be putting together some VS2015 project files for WinRT, as part of some ongoing Win10/UWP work, however I’m not sure if and when this would arrive in SDL-proper. (My work’s being done outside of hg.libsdl.org, and probably won’t get much work on it until the Fall, at the earliest.)

I could probably try tackling the creation of a VS2015 project file for Win32 around that time (Fall), if someone doesn’t get to it by then. I wouldn’t mind having a VS2015 project for Win32 myself, with better support for Project-to-Project reference. Whether or not it gets pushed to hg.libsdl.org is up to the highers-up though (Sam, Ryan, maybe others?) :-). There are probably lots of subtleties in the VC++/Win32 project files that I’m not as clued-in on, as I am with the WinRT-specific VC++ projects, so I might miss something in creating something like this. I think Sam recently did some work on older VC++/Win32 projects recently, as well.

Cheers!

The latest SDL snapshot has a unified project for Win32 with Visual Studio
2010 and later. I just opened it with Visual Studio 2015 Community RC
edition and built SDL just fine.

I was installing 2015 when I asked, after having updated to the latest repo head and noticing all the other sln files disappeared.________________________________

Can’t you just generate the solutions with cmake?
(No idea if cmake supports VS2015, but I guess if you generate for 2013
or some other older version, VS2015 will be able to import and convert that)
