Releasing a new version:

Once you’re happy with the state of the master branch and want to release a new version:

  1. Go to Releases
  2. Draft a new release
    • Tag: version according to SemVer, e.g. 4.0.0 or v4.0.0 - both will work
    • Title: can be a version number or a version number with a codename 4.0.0 - Cannonball
    • Description: copy & past new features, bugfixes, and breaking changes from the milestone’s description
    • Pre-release: check if the release is a pre-release and contains a pre-release suffix
  3. Publish the release
  4. GitHub Actions will build the source using the Release configuration and upload the resulting artifacts to NuGet (and to the GitHub Release)
  5. Close the current milestone and create a new one called vNext
