  • Run the full testsuite (tests\testament\tester all) and ensure it's green; actually ensure travis is green (Usually the case these days)

  • Update news.txt

  • write a news ticker entry
  • Update the version

    • In system.nim
  • Recompile koch!

  • Generate the full docs; koch web0

  • Test the installers: koch testinstall

  • Tag the release, e.g. git tag -am "Version 0.15.0" v0.15.0
  • Push the tag: git push origin [tagname]

  • The CI generates the installers. Download from ci.nim-lang.org

  • Merge devel into master

  • Update csources via koch pushcsources

Shell script to build a source tarball:

#!/bin/sh
set -eu
tmp_dir=$(mktemp -d)
cd $tmp_dir
git clone -q --depth 1 https://github.com/nim-lang/Nim.git
cd Nim
git clone -q --depth 1 https://github.com/nim-lang/csources
( cd csources && sh build.sh )
bin/nim c koch
./koch boot -d:release
./koch web0
PATH=$PATH:$(pwd)/bin
./koch csource -d:release
./koch xz -d:release

Shell script, work in progress:
