Release Process
====================
* Update translations (ping wumpus, Diapolo or tcatm on IRC) see [translation_process.md](https://github.com/bitcoin/bitcoin/blob/master/doc/translation_process.md#syncing-with-transifex)
Before every release candidate:
* Update translations (ping wumpus on IRC) see [translation_process.md](https://github.com/bitcoin/bitcoin/blob/master/doc/translation_process.md#syncing-with-transifex)
Before every minor and major release:
* Update [bips.md](bips.md) to account for changes since the last release.
* Update hardcoded [seeds](/contrib/seeds)
* Update version in sources (see below)
* Write release notes (see below)
Before every major release:
* * *
* Update hardcoded [seeds](/contrib/seeds/README.md), see [this pull request](https://github.com/bitcoin/bitcoin/pull/7415) for an example.
### First time / New builders
###First time / New builders
Check out the source code in the following directory hierarchy.
cd /path/to/your/toplevel/build
git clone https://github.com/bitcoin/gitian.sigs.git
git clone https://github.com/bitcoin/bitcoin-detached-sigs.git
git clone https://github.com/devrandom/gitian-builder.git

### Bitcoin maintainers/release engineers, update version in sources
Update the following:
- `configure.ac`:
- `_CLIENT_VERSION_MAJOR`
- `_CLIENT_VERSION_MINOR`
- `_CLIENT_VERSION_REVISION`
- Don't forget to set `_CLIENT_VERSION_IS_RELEASE` to `true`
- `src/clientversion.h`: (this mirrors `configure.ac` - see issue #3539)
- `CLIENT_VERSION_MAJOR`
- `CLIENT_VERSION_MINOR`
- `CLIENT_VERSION_REVISION`
- Don't forget to set `CLIENT_VERSION_IS_RELEASE` to `true`
- `doc/README.md` and `doc/README_windows.txt`
- `doc/Doxyfile`: `PROJECT_NUMBER` contains the full version
- `contrib/gitian-descriptors/*.yml`: usually one'd want to do this on master after branching off the release - but be sure to at least do it before a new major release
###Bitcoin maintainers/release engineers, update (commit) version in sources
Write release notes. git shortlog helps a lot, for example:
pushd ./bitcoin
contrib/verifysfbinaries/verify.sh
configure.ac
doc/README*
doc/Doxyfile
contrib/gitian-descriptors/*.yml
src/clientversion.h (change CLIENT_VERSION_IS_RELEASE to true)
git shortlog --no-merges v(current version, e.g. 0.7.2)..v(new version, e.g. 0.8.0)
# tag version in git
(or ping @wumpus on IRC, he has specific tooling to generate the list of merged pulls
and sort them into categories based on labels)
git tag -s v(new version, e.g. 0.8.0)
Generate list of authors:
# write release notes. git shortlog helps a lot, for example:
git log --format='%aN' "$*" | sort -ui | sed -e 's/^/- /'
git shortlog --no-merges v(current version, e.g. 0.7.2)..v(new version, e.g. 0.8.0)
popd

###Optional: Seed the Gitian sources cache and offline git repositories
### Optional: Seed the Gitian sources cache and offline git repositories
By default, Gitian will fetch source files as needed. To cache them ahead of time:
make -C ../bitcoin/depends download SOURCES_PATH=`pwd`/cache/common
pushd ./gitian-builder
make -C ../bitcoin/depends download SOURCES_PATH=`pwd`/cache/common
popd
Only missing files will be fetched, so this is safe to re-run for each build.
NOTE: Offline builds must use the --url flag to ensure Gitian fetches only from local URLs. For example:
```
./bin/gbuild --url bitcoin=/path/to/bitcoin,signature=/path/to/sigs {rest of arguments}
```
pushd ./gitian-builder
./bin/gbuild --url bitcoin=/path/to/bitcoin,signature=/path/to/sigs {rest of arguments}
popd
The gbuild invocations below <b>DO NOT DO THIS</b> by default.

### Next steps:
Commit your signature to gitian.sigs:
pushd gitian.sigs
git add ${VERSION}-linux/${SIGNER}

git commit -a
git push # Assuming you can push to the gitian.sigs tree

Wait for Windows/OS X detached signatures:
Once the Windows/OS X builds each have 3 matching signatures, they will be signed with their respective release keys.
Detached signatures will then be committed to the [bitcoin-detached-sigs](https://github.com/bitcoin/bitcoin-detached-sigs) repository, which can be combined with the unsigned apps to create signed binaries.
Create (and optionally verify) the signed OS X binary:
pushd ./gitian-builder
./bin/gbuild -i --commit signature=v${VERSION} ../bitcoin/contrib/gitian-descriptors/gitian-osx-signer.yml
./bin/gsign --signer $SIGNER --release ${VERSION}-osx-signed --destination ../gitian.sigs/ ../bitcoin/contrib/gitian-descriptors/gitian-osx-signer.yml
