The KTX-Software repo will soon change from a GYP-based to a CMake-based build system. The work is ongoing in the
cmake branch. When
cmake is merged to master the pre-generated solution and project files and the pre-generated linux-only CMakeLists.txt files will be removed. The GYP files will remain for a while as will the make file for generating projects from them. But you must be prepared to install CMake and use it to generate the projects you need.
We also plan to make downloadable binaries of the library and tools available.
