WotC compatibility: the mod does work with WotC DLC, all you need to do is reassign "Toggle Free Cam" hotkey in [Path-To-Mods]\FreeCameraRotation\Config\XComInput.ini from LeftAlt to RightAlt or whatever you like.

NOTE: mods do not disable achievements in XCOM2.

DISCLAIMER: since XCOM2 mods do not have reliable uninstall mechanism and I don't have Firaxis size QA department, I can't guarantee any of my mods are 100% bugs free, so use them at your own risk. I do play with all of them and I will release fixes or at least workarounds if bugs/problems are discovered.

INSTALLATION:

Windows users:
For manual install unzip the package into your Steam\steamapps\common\XCOM 2\XComGame\Mods folder (create Mods folder if it doesn't exist). The mod should be visible and selectable in launcher. If it's not, make sure you haven't unpacked the mod into a subfolder, i.e. FreeCameraRotation.XComMod file should be in Steam\steamapps\common\XCOM 2\XComGame\Mods\FreeCameraRotation folder. Run the launcher, select the mod.

Latest patch notes for Linux and Mac users: it was reported that filenames are automatically converted to lowercase since the last patch, so workshop mods should work out of the box.

Linux users:
Create mods folder under [Path To SteamLibrary]/steamapps/common/XCOM 2/share/data/xcomgame, so it looks like this: [Path To
SteamLibrary]/steamapps/common/XCOM 2/share/data/xcomgame/mods and unpack the mod there. Then mass-rename all the folders and files to lowercase. Final file structure should look like this: [Path To SteamLibrary]/steamapps/common/XCOM 2/share/data/xcomgame/mods/freecamerarotation/freecamerarotation.xcommod (plus other files inside freecamerarotation folder). Run the launcher, select the mod.

Mac users:
Create mods folder under ~/Library/Application Support/Steam/steamapps/common/XCOM 2/XCOM2Data/xcomgame, so it looks like this: ~/Library/Application Support/Steam/steamapps/common/XCOM 2/XCOM2Data/xcomgame/mods and unpack the mod there. Then mass-rename all the folders and files to lowercase. Final file structure should look like this: ~/Library/Application Support/Steam/steamapps/common/XCOM 2/XCOM2Data/xcomgame/mods/freecamerarotation/freecamerarotation.xcommod (plus other files inside freecamerarotation folder). Run the launcher, select the mod.
