Releasing Grape

There're no particular rules about when to release Grape. Release bug fixes frequently, features not so frequently and breaking API changes rarely.

Release

Run tests, check that all tests succeed locally.

bundle install
rake

Check that the last build succeeded in Travis CI for all supported platforms.

Those with r/w permissions to the master Intridea repository generally have large Grape-based projects. Point one to Grape HEAD and run all your API tests to catch any obvious regressions.

gem grape, github: 'intridea/grape'

Increment the version, modify lib/grape/version.rb.

  • Increment the third number if the release has bug fixes and/or very minor features, only (eg. change 0.5.1 to 0.5.2).
  • Increment the second number if the release contains major features or breaking API changes (eg. change 0.5.1 to 0.6.0).

Modify the "Stable Release" section in README.md. Change the text to reflect that this is going to be the documentation for a stable release. Remove references to the previous release of Grape. Keep the file open, you'll have to undo this change after the release.

## Stable Release

You're reading the documentation for the stable release of Grape, 0.6.0.

Change "Next Release" in CHANGELOG.md to the new version.

0.6.0 (9/16/2013)

Remove the line with "Your contribution here.", since there will be no more contributions to this release.
