Producing Release Notes

To produce release notes you must maintain a status.xml file for your project and request a page with an URL such as, this will be produce the release notes for 0.7-dev.

If the version number ends with -dev a warning will be included in the generated page, informing the reader that it is a development version and therefore the list of changes is incomplete.

For a status.xml action toi be included in the release notes it must have an attribute importance="high". When writing actions in status.xml you should write them with the following two questions in mind:

  • should it be importance="high"?
  • will the action read correctly in the release notes?

The introductory text in the release notes comes from the (optional) element notes (a child of the release element).
