On behalf of Zach, Dave, Bill, Brad, myself and the rest of the CDash 
team, we are pleased to announce that CDash 1.8.2 is available for 
download at: http://www.cdash.org

Documentation on how to upgrade from previous CDash installations is 
available at: http://public.kitware.com/Wiki/CDash:Upgrade. Note that 
CDash is now compression the code coverage and as a result the upgrade 
might take some time if you have a lot of coverage (about 2 hours for 
50GB), you should be patient.

If you have any problems or find any bugs, please report them at 

A list of changes for the 1.8 release is included below and at
