To define a release:

1. From the Repository Manager menu, select Define, Releases.

The Releases window opens.


You can also open this window from the Manage tab of the catalog, by double-clicking Releases.

2. Select a Repository Code from the dropdown list.
3. Specify a Release Nr. for this release. This can be any number or code, up to 8 characters long.

For example: 8.0.2A, aleph, Omega2.5, TODAY, 20100427.

4. Optionally, specify an Alias.

For example: Achilles, Today's 8 version, Maastricht, 27 april 2010.

5. Select a Basket from the dropdown list.


Currently, you can only use Definer baskets.

6. Optionally, select the Backup checkbox to specify whether the release should be backed up. In this case, before the release is exported, first a copy is made of the existing release (if any). It is copied to a document with name:

<rep version>_<release nr>.old.xml

Also, a backup comparison for this release is generated that compares the current (= most recently exported) release with the previously exported release.

7. Optionally, you can specify Release Notes for this release.
8. Save your changes.

The release is now listed under Releases on the Manage tab of the catalog.
