Releasing xtensor

Releasing a new version

From the master branch of xtensor

  • Make sure that you are in sync with the master branch of the upstream remote.
  • Update the changelog.
  • In file xtensor_config.hpp, set the macros for XTENSOR_VERSION_MAJOR, XTENSOR_VERSION_MINOR and XTENSOR_VERSION_PATCH to the desired values.
  • In file CMakeLists.txt, update the version of the dependencies and the corresponding variables, e.g. xtl_REQUIRED_VERSION.
  • In file environment.yml, update the version of the dependencies including xtensor.
  • In file README.md, update the dependencies table.
  • Stage the changes (git add), commit the changes (git commit) and add a tag of the form Major.minor.patch. It is important to not add any other content to the tag name.
  • Push the new commit and tag to the main repository. (git push, and git push --tags)

Updating the conda-forge recipe

xtensor has been packaged for the conda package manager. Once the new tag has been pushed on GitHub, edit the conda-forge recipe for xtensor in the following fashion:

  • Update the version number to the new Major.minor.patch.
  • Set the build number to 0.
  • Update the hash of the source tarball.
  • Check for the versions of the dependencies.
  • Optionally, rerender the conda-forge feedstock.

Updating the stable branch

Once the conda-forge package has been updated, update the stable branch to the newly added tag.
