Release strategy

  • The current stable version will always be maintained in the master branch.
  • Unstable and development versions can be accessed via the develop branch.
  • Full regression tests will be performed every major (x.0.0) or minor (0.x.0) release of PyTan
  • All documentation and API examples will be rebuilt every major (x.0.0) or minor (0.x.0) release of PyTan
  • Revision releases (0.0.x) will only be tested against the latest stable release of Tanium for each minor build (6.2.314.xxxx, 6.5.314.xxxx, etc.)
