Checklists for a successful Matomo release

Work on the release in the beta cycle:

Steps towards Release Candidate 1:

  • Tag a new release for matomo-org/referrer-spam-blacklist and matomo-org/searchengine-and-social-list
  • Fetch our latest and greatest home-made libraries with composer update matomo-org/referrer-spam-blacklist matomo-org/searchengine-and-social-list matomo-org/matomo-php-tracker matomo-org/component-network,matomo-org/component-ini,matomo-org/component-decompress,matomo-org/component-cache
  • Fetch the latest composer libraries for all with composer update
  • Up to date submodules
  • Tag the RC candidate
  • Check that the build is green
  • Package & release the Release Candidate
  • Post sticky thread in forum about RC
  • inform RC release on social media

The final checks before the stable release:

  • Release candidate cycle (at least 1 week cycle)
  • Fix all remaining issues in the milestone
  • All open source plugins builds are green on master with latest RC
  • Plugins that needed a version bump are now released on the marketplace
  • Synchronise translations from transifex
  • Submodules are up to date

Prepare the Changelog entry:

  • Mark that the release has a major DB upgrade
  • Use our github changelog generator to generate the changelog using this config.js
  • Add to changelog any new issues or FAQ added since first RC
  • Add to changelog the security issues fixed, if any
  • Do not publish publicly the changelog yet. This also ensures security issues are not publicly visible until the stable release.
  • Change changelog published date to the release day

Check the developer changelog is complete, by looking over each issue:

  • is this issue relevant to developers? let's mention it in the Developer changelog
  • is this issue's title descriptive and useful to people scanning our changelog?
  • are the right labels applied to the issue? (issues tagged with labels such as Bug, Enhancement, Major are grouped together in the changelog)
  • if this issue was sponsored, we note the sponsor organisation in the changelog.

Merge 3.x-dev branch into master:

💥 Release 🚀

  • Close milestone on Github
  • Release publicly the new stable version by running ./scripts/build-package.sh 3.x.y from here and waiting 5 minutes
  • In Github release we write
## [Matomo 3.3.0 Changelog](https://matomo.org/changelog/matomo-3-3-0/)

This Github download (below) is only meant for developers and it will require extra work to install it.
