CMake 2.8.6-rc3 ready for testing!

September 9, 2011

The CMake 2.8.6 release candidate stream continues! You can find the source and binaries here:;O=D

If you want to test this out and ask for a fix, do it soon, or hold your peace till the next release! I expect we will finalize the 2.8.6 release by mid-September.

This release candidate we do not have pre-built binaries for the SunOS anymore. As mentioned on the CMake mailing list recently, our Sun hardware has bitten the proverbial dust.

However, we are now providing two sets of installers for the Mac. The “Darwin” versions are for Mac OSX 10.4 and later, and are “ppc;i386” universal binaries. The “Darwin64” versions are for 10.6 and later, and are “x86_64;i386” universal binaries.

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!
