GitHub release draft

GitHub allows drafting the release note for the upcoming release, from the Releases page. This way, the release note can be drafted while contributions are merged to master.

This file should contain the same information as the release note draft for the upcoming version.

Update it to:

$ cd /path/to/shaarli

$ nano


## [vX.Y.Z]( - YYYY-MM-DD[](.html)

Increment the version code, create and push a signed tag

Bump Shaarli's version

$ cd /path/to/shaarli

# create a new branch
$ git fetch upstream
$ git checkout upstream/master -b v0.5.0

# bump the version number
$ vim index.php shaarli_version.php

# rebuild the documentation from the wiki
$ make htmldoc

# commit the changes
$ git add index.php shaarli_version.php doc
$ git commit -s -m "Bump version to v0.5.0"

# push the commit on your GitHub fork
$ git push origin v0.5.0

Create and merge a Pull Request

This one is pretty straightforward ;-)

Create and push a signed tag

# update your local copy
$ git checkout master
$ git fetch upstream
$ git pull upstream master

# create a signed tag
$ git tag -s -m "Release v0.5.0" v0.5.0

# push it to "upstream"
$ git push --tags upstream

Verify a signed tag

v0.5.0 is the first GPG-signed tag pushed on the Community Shaarli.

Let's have a look at its signature!

$ cd /path/to/shaarli
$ git fetch upstream

# get the SHA1 reference of the tag
$ git show-ref tags/v0.5.0
f7762cf803f03f5caf4b8078359a63783d0090c1 refs/tags/v0.5.0

# verify the tag signature information
$ git verify-tag f7762cf803f03f5caf4b8078359a63783d0090c1
gpg: Signature made Thu 30 Jul 2015 11:46:34 CEST using RSA key ID 4100DF6F
gpg: Good signature from "VirtualTam <>" [ultimate][](.html)

Publish the GitHub release

Update release badges

Update so version badges display and point to the newly released Shaarli version(s).

Create a GitHub release from a Git tag

From the previously drafted release:

Generate and upload all-in-one release archives

Users with a shared hosting may have:

To ease Shaarli installations, it is possible to generate and upload additional release archives,
that will contain Shaarli code plus all required third-party libraries:

$ make release_archive

This will create the following archives:

The archives need to be manually uploaded on the previously created GitHub release.
