Please add semantic version tags #8

I’ve recently added MHTabBarController to the CocoaPods package manager repo.

CocoaPods is a tool for managing dependencies for OSX and iOS Xcode projects and provides a central repository for iOS/OSX libraries. This makes adding libraries to a project and updating them extremely easy and it will help users to resolve dependencies of the libraries they use.

However, MHTabBarController doesn't have any version tags. I’ve added the current HEAD as version 0.0.1, but a version tag will make dependency resolution much easier.

Semantic version tags (instead of plain commit hashes/revisions) allow for resolution of cross-dependencies.

In case you didn’t know this yet; you can tag the current HEAD as, for instance, version 1.0.0, like so:

$ git tag -a 1.0.0 -m "Tag release 1.0.0"
$ git push --tags

I have been resisting adding MHTabBarController to CocoaPods because it was never intended to be a reusable component, but an example that shows how to do this sort of thing.


I did a small update of MHTabBarController today and tagged the new version as 1.0.0. Feel free to update that in the CocoaPods spec repository. ;-)
