maintainers: how to make a release ?

Follow step below after checking that all tests pass

  1. List all tags sorted by version

    git fetch --tags && \
    git tag -l | sort -V
  2. Choose the next release version number (without

    version_major=$(echo $tag | tr -d v | cut -d. -f1)
    version_minor=$(echo $tag | tr -d v | cut -d. -f2)
    version_patch=$(echo $tag | tr -d v | cut -d. -f3)
    echo "version_major [$version_major] version_minor[$version_minor] version_patch[$version_patch]"
  3. Update CMakeLists.txt setting CTKAppLauncher_VERSION_IS_RELEASE and CTKAppLauncher_*_VERSION variables

    sed -E "s/set\(CTKAppLauncher_VERSION_IS_RELEASE 0\)/set\(CTKAppLauncher_VERSION_IS_RELEASE 1\)/g" -i CMakeLists.txt && \
    sed -E "s/set\(CTKAppLauncher_MAJOR_VERSION [0-9]+\)/set\(CTKAppLauncher_MAJOR_VERSION $version_major\)/g" -i CMakeLists.txt && \
    sed -E "s/set\(CTKAppLauncher_MINOR_VERSION [0-9]+\)/set\(CTKAppLauncher_MINOR_VERSION $version_minor\)/g" -i CMakeLists.txt && \
    sed -E "s/set\(CTKAppLauncher_BUILD_VERSION [0-9]+\)/set\(CTKAppLauncher_BUILD_VERSION $version_patch\)/g" -i CMakeLists.txt && \
    git add CMakeLists.txt && \
    git commit -m "CTKAppLauncher $tag" && \
    git diff HEAD^
  4. Tag the release. Requires a GPG key with signatures:

    git tag -s -m "CTKAppLauncher $tag" $tag main
  5. Publish the tag and main branch to trigger the release build

    git push origin $tag && \
    git push origin main

Important: Until issue scikit-build/scikit-ci-addons/issues/96 is addressed, macOS release package should be manually downloaded from the GitHub Actions artifact and uploaded as a GitHub release asset.

  1. Update CMakeLists.txt setting CTKAppLauncher_VERSION_IS_RELEASE to 0

    sed -E "s/set\(CTKAppLauncher_VERSION_IS_RELEASE 1\)/set\(CTKAppLauncher_VERSION_IS_RELEASE 0\)/g" -i CMakeLists.txt && \
    git add CMakeLists.txt && \
    git commit -m "Begin post-$tag development [ci skip]" && \
    git diff HEAD^
  2. Publish the changes:

    git push origin main
