CMake 1.8.1-1 is now available on Cygwin mirrors.

This is a major release from 1.6.7 to 1.8.1.

Changes from 1.8.0 to 1.8.1:

Added initial support for MinGW builds on Windows. Fixed a couple bugs in the
ctest program. Some fixes to the FindThreads and FindwxWindows modules. A fix
to the Custom Command dependency code. Better error reporting for ctest and
loaded commands.

Changes from 1.6.7 to 1.8:

The custom commands have been rearchitected to use a more understandable
signature. The old signature should still work. Ctest has been enhanced and
can produce testing dashboards compatible with Dart in many cases. A new FILE
command has been added that supports reading, writing, and globing of
files. A new help target is created for all Makefiles so you can do nmake
help (or make help) Command line options (-D) for cmake no longer require the
type of the argument. The on-line help for cmake has been significantly
improved. Run cmake -help for more information. Support for windows paths and
filenames that include &. Support for files with multiple "." in them for
nmake. More Modules report results to CMakeOutput.log and CMakeError.log. And
of course a number of minor bug fixes and enhancements.

See for more information.
