CMake 2.8.6-rc4 ready for testing!

September 22, 2011

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

This is the last rc before the final release, unless somebody finds a showstopper issue between now and next Thursday.

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!

  1. What kind of love would you like…? You can use the Visual Studio 10 generators, and then open the generated solutions/projects with the Visual Studio 11 developer preview.

    Let us know if you find problems with that approach for now.
