We have working snapshots for Windows and Linux now. We'll need to extend this to proper releases. Building a release will probably be triggered by pushing a tag.

  • Implement upload endpoint for the release.
    • Update download page
    • Handle dry releases (extra download page?)
  • Build and upload Linux releases
    • These will look exactly like the snapshots (AppImage).
  • Build and upload Windows releases.
    • Installer instead of zip archive.
  • Source download?
    • Maybe just link to github.

Building a release will probably be triggered by pushing a tag.

Don't forget that we also need a way to trigger a dry release for testing (possibly also for an old revision for bisecting problems?). Either without using git or by having many RC/testing tags in the repos.

Right. Our existing release tags look like vX.Y or vX.Y.Z, so we could have pre-release tags looking like vX.Y-abc, e.g. v9.0-rc1. I think we had less than five dry releases for 8.0, so the additional tags are probably fine. In any case, we can clean up and remove the pre-release tags after a successful release.

I think old revisions are also trivially covered by this scheme, as you can create and push tags for any revision.

Can the AppImage snapshots be downloaded somewhere? Thanks.
