This can be used e.g. to prevent installing cmake configuration files, headers, or static libraries with the wheel. Thanks @SylvainCorlay for the contribution. See #473.

  • Add support for passing CMake configure options like -DFOO:STRING:bar as global setuptools or pip options.

  • Add support for building project using PyPy or PyPy3. See See #407.

  • Add support for OS/400 (now known as IBM i). Thanks @jwoehr for the contribution. See #444.

  • Display CMake command used to configure the project. Thanks @native-api for the contribution. See #443.

  • CMake modules:

    • Improve CMake module F2PY adding add_f2py_target() CMake function allowing to generate *-f2pywrappers.f and *module.c files from *.pyf files. Thanks @xoviat for the contribution.
