Please note:

  • The Python 2 interface will be removed in Q1 2023. Users are strongly advised to migrate to Python 3.

  • We have added an experimental CMake option to allow compilation with a C++ compiler. To enable this, pass the following to the cmake command:
    This option is disabled by default.
