The following walks through how we make a release.
Pop onto IRC and let folks know you're about to cut a release
Now pull and make sure things build locally fine first :)
mvn release:prepare -P release,grunt
If the build fails then rollback via
mvn release:rollback -P release,grunt
The tag should get auto-defaulted to something like hawtio-1.2
mvn release:perform -P release,grunt
when the release is done:
git push --tags
Now go to the OSS Nonatype Nexus and Close then Release the staging repo
Now, go into github issues and create a new milestone (if not already created) for the release number that you just released. Close this milestone. Now go through each open milestonee and move all closed issues to your new milestone. Also move issues that are closed but have no milestone to the new milestone. This will ensure that all fixed issues in the last development period will be correctly associated with the release that the fix was introduced in.
Update the changelog with links to your milestone which will list all the fixes/enhancements that made it into the release. Also mention any major changes in the changelog.
Now update the new dev version the following files so the new dev build doens't barf
Now update the following files for the new release version:
One the release has sync'd to maven central and the new website is up with the new extension.xml (see above), you'll need to:
go to the chrome-extension directory
check the manifest has the correct new view (see above on version number changes)
now go to the Chrome Web Store and upload the target/extension.zip file and hit publish
Now drink a beer! Then another! There, thats better now isn't it!
