When preparing a new release of Slicer3:

  • Create a new branch in the svn repository with the name Slicer-3-x, where x is the next even number
svn copy http://svn.slicer.org/Slicer3/trunk/ http://svn.slicer.org/Slicer3/branches/Slicer-3-6 -m "ENH: new branch"
  • Tag the svn repository for each release candidate build that will be distributed (so we can recreate the source for that binary if needed). Use a command like:
svn copy http://svn.slicer.org/Slicer3/branches/Slicer-3-6 http://svn.slicer.org/Slicer3/tags/Slicer-3-6-RC2 -m "ENH: tag of version of the code used to make the builds on May 15, 2010"
    • don't tag it when you branch it
    • tag when making release candidates
  • check out the new branch using
 svn co http://svn.slicer.org/Slicer3/branches/Slicer-3-x Slicer3
  • Update Slicer3/slicer_variables.tcl to reflect the svn branch
 set ::Slicer3_TAG "http://svn.slicer.org/Slicer3/branches/Slicer-3-x"
  • Update title bar via the SetName command in
 Base/GUI/vtkSlicerApplication.cxx
  • Update version in binary name in getbuildtest.tcl
  • Update Slicer3_VERSION_MINOR in Slicer3/CMakeLists.txt
  • CPack packaging
    • installer file name
    • installed program name on windows
  • Logos
    • Welcome module
  • On the svn head
    • update the title bar to the next odd number, using the SetName command in Base/GUI/vtkSlicerApplication.cxx
    • update CPack packaging
      • installer file name
      • installed program name on windows
    • optionally update logos
