Honor visibility properties for all target types.
VISIBILITY_INLINES_HIDDEN target properties affect visibility of symbols during dynamic linking. When first introduced these properties affected compilation of sources only in shared libraries, module libraries, and executables with the
ENABLE_EXPORTS property set. This was sufficient for the basic use cases of shared libraries and executables with plugins. However, some sources may be compiled as part of static libraries or object libraries and then linked into a shared library later. CMake 3.3 and above prefer to honor these properties for sources compiled in all target types. This policy preserves compatibility for projects expecting the properties to work only for some target types.
OLD behavior for this policy is to ignore the visibility properties for static libraries, object libraries, and executables without exports. The
NEW behavior for this policy is to honor the visibility properties for all target types.
This policy was introduced in CMake version 3.3. CMake version 3.9.0 warns when the policy is not set and uses
OLD behavior. Use the
cmake_policy() command to set it to
OLD behavior of a policy is
deprecated by definition and may be removed in a future version of CMake.
