Subject: midas-2019-06 with cmake and c++ 
Please note that 

"make cmake" / "make cmake3"

is an abbreviation for the "normal" cmake command chain. Users familiar with cmake can also do the standard command chain:

mkdir build
cd build
cmake ..
make install

> We are happy to the midas release "midas-2019-06" with the build system implemented in cmake and the midas, mxml and mscb 
> projects switched to C++.
> Changes since midas-2019-03:
> minor bug fixes
> switch of midas build to c++ with c++ linkage (no "extern C")
> switch of midas build to cmake
> removal of $(OS_DIR) from the midas library and bin paths (use $MIDASSYS/lib instead of $MIDASSYS/linux/lib)
> mxml and mscb are implemented as git submodules
> Please review the following guide to update midas from previous release midas-2019-03 or older.
> Update the code:
> git checkout develop
> git pull
> git checkout feature/midas-2019-06
> git pull
> git submodule update --init # this will checkout correct versions of mxml and mscb
> make clean
> make cclean
> rm -rf linux/bin
> rm -rf linux/lib
> rmdir linux
> make cmake3 # or "make cmake" on ubuntu and macos
> ls -l bin/odbedit bin/mlogger
> Update experiment environment:
> - change PATH from $MIDASSYS/linux/bin to $MIDASSYS/bin
> Cleanup unneeded stuff:
> - remove $HOME/packages/mxml (new location $MIDASSYS/mxml)
> - remove $HOME/packages/mscb (new location $MIDASSYS/mscb)
> Update experiment frontend build:
> - change Makefile to remove $(OS_DIR) from library search path ($MIDASSYS/linux/lib becomes $MIDASSYS/lib)
> - change Makefile to set mxml include path from $MIDASSYS/../mxml to $MIDASSYS/mxml (to avoid including the wrong 
> version of mxml/strlcpy.h)
> - update frontend code to use mfe.h and build as C++, see
> K.O.
