Supported Compilers
===================
CMake is currently aware of the :prop_tgt:`language standards <CXX_STANDARD>`
and :prop_gbl:`compile features <CMAKE_CXX_KNOWN_FEATURES>` available from
the following :variable:`compiler ids <CMAKE_<LANG>_COMPILER_ID>` as of the
versions specified for each:
* ``AppleClang``: Apple Clang for Xcode versions 4.4 though 6.2.
* ``Clang``: Clang compiler versions 2.9 through 3.4.
* ``GNU``: GNU compiler versions 4.4 through 5.0.
* ``MSVC``: Microsoft Visual Studio versions 2010 through 2015.
* ``SunPro``: Oracle SolarisStudio version 12.4.
