This is a short documentation on creating a release of phpMyAdmin. The file 'create_release.sh' also prints instructions.
Adjust ChangeLog in the target branch - at least release date has to be set, if performing a security release then make sure security issues are noted in the ChangeLog as well.
Set the proper version in the appropriate files (noted by the script).
Checkout the phpmyadmin repository, master branch (even if you intend to release from another branch).
Run ./scripts/create-release.sh, for example: ./scripts/create-release.sh3.3.0MAINT_3_3_0--tag--stable
Follow instructions printed by the script, most importantly
Write release notes
Upload the files to the file server
Add news item and send announcement mails
Increase version in released branch (usually gets a -dev suffix so that the error-reporting server knows the difference between a released version and a development version).
For stable releases, we maintain separate STABLE branch in Git, which users can follow. This one is updated by passing --stable to the create release script:
Once maintenance for given branch is over, it can be removed from git. For example once 4.5.4 is released, maintenance branch for 4.5.3 can be removed as it won't receive further updates:
git push origin :MAINT_4_5_3
When creating a pre-release version, such as -alpha1 or -rc2, we create a Git tag but of course don't move up STABLE. Typically, we create the QA_ branch before the release of -beta1,
to reduce the inclusion of new, untested features.
To release a new Docker image in our own repository, for each type (apache, fpm-alpine, fpm) edit the Dockerfile to change ENV VERSION. Create the tagged release with git tag -a 5.0.0 -m "5.0.0" and don't forget to push origin --tags.
For the official Docker Hub build, the workflow is a little more complex and requires submitting a pull request to their repository.
