LINK_OPTIONS and INTERFACE_LINK_OPTIONS target properties are now used for the device link step.

In CMake 3.17 and below, link options are not used by the device link step.

The OLD behavior for this policy is to ignore the link options.

The NEW behavior of this policy is to use the link options during the device link step.

This policy was introduced in CMake version 3.17. Use the cmake_policy() command to set it to OLD or NEW explicitly. Unlike many policies, CMake version 3.18.4 does not warn when this policy is not set and simply uses OLD behavior.


The OLD behavior of a policy is deprecated by definition and may be removed in a future version of CMake.
