CMake 2.8.5-rc3 ready for testing!

June 27, 2011

The CMake 2.8.5 release candidate stream continues! You can find the
source and binaries here:;O=D

I hope this will be the last release candidate for CMake 2.8.5. We’ll build
and release 2.8.5 this week unless somebody reports a “must fix” major
regression from a previous release.

The pre-built binary builds for the IRIX platform are not yet built and
uploaded. I’m having trouble connecting to the build machine for that
platform at the moment. As soon as I can connect, I’ll get that built and
uploaded. Until then, you can build CMake from source on that platform.

Following is the list of changes in this release. Since we switched to
git, this list is now the ‘git log’ one line summary written by the
named CMake developers.

Please try this version of CMake on your projects and report any
issues to the list or the bug tracker.

Happy building!
