This page describes how to release a new version of Flamenco. This requires not only access to the sources, but also to the flamenco.blender.org infrastructure. As such, it’s only practically helpful for a small number of people.

  4. Update Makefile and change the VERSION and RELEASE_CYCLE variables.
  5. make update-version
  6. git commit -m "Bump version to ${VERSION}"
  7. git tag v${VERSION}
