title: Announce the release
navgroup: developers

After svnpubsub has updated, the artifacts will be visible at, and distributed to Apache mirrors around the world shortly after.

An announcement email can then be made:

### Subject: [ANNOUNCE] Apache Brooklyn 0.7.0-incubating released
{% highlight text %}
The Apache Brooklyn team is proud to announce the latest release of Apache
Brooklyn 0.7.0-incubating.

Apache Brooklyn is a framework for modelling, monitoring, and managing
applications through autonomic blueprints. More details on Apache Brooklyn
can be found at

Version 0.7.0 is a major step for Apache Brooklyn. It is the first full
release of the project as part of the Apache incubator.

Thanks go to our community for their improvements, feedback and guidance, and
to Brooklyn’s commercial users for funding much of this development.

As well as a source code release, we offer a full binary distribution
download, and a full set of Maven artifacts for developers.

Release notes:


User guide:

Maven artifacts have also been made available on and
Maven Central.

Apache Brooklyn is an effort undergoing incubation at The Apache Software
Foundation (ASF), sponsored by Incubator. Incubation is required of
all newly accepted projects until a further review indicates that the
infrastructure, communications, and decision making process have
stabilized in a manner consistent with other successful ASF projects.
While incubation status is not necessarily a reflection of the
completeness or stability of the code, it does indicate that the
project has yet to be fully endorsed by the ASF.

title: Fix on the release branch
navgroup: developers

Make whatever changes are necessary on the release branch, supported by discussions on the mailing list.

Remember that after the release is done, you should cherry-pick the changes to a new feature branch based on `master`
and open a pull request, so that the next version will incorporate the bug fixes.
