1. BUILDING AND INSTALLATION

CMake (Unix)

mkdir build && cd build
cmake ..     # Default to Unix Makefiles.

make verify  # (optional)

See Documentation/Building#Building on Unix using CMake for more information.

CMake (Windows)

Install CMake: https://cmake.org/

md build && cd build
cmake -G "Visual Studio 10" ..   # Or use any generator you want to use. Run cmake --help for a list
cmake --build . --config Release # Or "start libevent.sln" and build with menu in Visual Studio.

See Documentation/Building#Building on Windows for more information.

Package Managers

You can download and install libevent using the vcpkg dependency manager:

git clone https://github.com/Microsoft/vcpkg.git
cd vcpkg
./bootstrap-vcpkg.sh
./vcpkg integrate install
./vcpkg install libevent

The libevent port in vcpkg is kept up to date by Microsoft team members and community contributors. If the version is out of date, please create an issue or pull request on the vcpkg repository.

2. USEFUL LINKS:

To report bugs, issues, or ask for new features:

Patches: https://github.com/libevent/libevent/pulls

OK, those are not really patches. You fork, modify, and hit the "Create Pull Request" button. You can still submit normal git patches via the mailing list.

Bugs, Features [RFC], and Issues: https://github.com/libevent/libevent/issues

Or you can do it via the mailing list.

There's also a libevent-users mailing list for talking about Libevent use and development:
