I agree with you. I many way 3.5 a superior product....eg. to this date
since, since i started using 4 no one has clearly indicate to me how to
simply compile just one file of a project without actually editing the
CMakefile leaving just that one desired uncommented .... 3.5 you would just
right click on that file a select that file. Version 4 require you to know
a good deal about cmake

I suggest you go through the cmake tutorial. ..
