This wiki page describes software releases from the Elftoolchain project.
Our current release management policy is described below:
- Development happens on trunk/.
- When we reach a significant milestone in the project's development (see the roadmap), trunk/ will be branched into a release branch (such as branches/release-branch-0.5). Release branches are numbered "X.Y".
- The first release on a release branch will be numbered X.Y.1, (for example, 0.5.1). Subsequent releases on the branch will then be numbered X.Y.2, X.Y.3, and so on. These "point" releases will be created only if necessary, for example, for critical bug fixes.
- Branches are "retired" after a reasonable period of time, after which point maintenance work on the branch stops.
