Hey Alexander,

thanks for your work on the CMake build files.

I just rebased your cmake branch onto the current master (19f1402f1d) by
skipping the following commits:
 1. 3c939b49eadbd1e629eab0a626c80cd71a23642d
 2. ac3dc09e2fb32628d20117f151ae073801068c33

You can find my rebased branch here:

It also includes a small fix to make it work with WinCNG again:

This way I was able to compile with WinCNG and connect to my local SSHd
using the ssh example:

  E:\OS\libssh2\example\Debug>example-ssh2.exe test test
  Fingerprint: F6 C2 3B A2 56 C4 D8 BC 49 ED 3E 3E 90 1B 1A D9 6F 51 9A BF
  Authentication methods: publickey,password
          Authentication by password succeeded.
  all done!

Please do not remove the existing build infrastructure, just yet.
CMake cannot replace all of them and even those that can be replaced
need to deprecated first and slowly phased out.

Best regards,
