I would suggest we should not update cmake to a version that requires C++11. It was unwise for the developers of cmake to impose such a restriction on their software, since their software is used to build other software, and that other software might not want to impose the same restriction. I'm unclear whether having a subport for the last non-C++11 version will help.
