Release Process


###update (commit) version in sources

contrib/verifysfbinaries/verify.sh
doc/README*
share/setup.nsi
src/clientversion.h (change CLIENT_VERSION_IS_RELEASE to true)

###tag version in git

git tag -s v(new version, e.g. 0.8.0)

###write release notes. git shortlog helps a lot, for example:

git shortlog --no-merges v(current version, e.g. 0.7.2)..v(new version, e.g. 0.8.0)

###perform gitian builds

From a directory containing the bitcoin source, gitian-builder and gitian.sigs

export SIGNER=(your gitian key, ie bluematt, sipa, etc)
export VERSION=(new version, e.g. 0.8.0)
pushd ./bitcoin
git checkout v${VERSION}
popd
pushd ./gitian-builder

###fetch and build inputs: (first time, or when dependency versions change)

mkdir -p inputs; cd inputs/

Register and download the Apple SDK: (see OSX Readme for details)

https://developer.apple.com/downloads/download.action?path=Developer_Tools/xcode_4.6.3/xcode4630916281a.dmg

Using a Mac, create a tarball for the 10.7 SDK and copy it to the inputs directory:

tar -C /Volumes/Xcode/Xcode.app/Contents/Developer/Platforms/MacOSX.platform/Developer/SDKs/ -czf MacOSX10.7.sdk.tar.gz MacOSX10.7.sdk

Download remaining inputs, and build everything:

Build Bitcoin Core for Linux, Windows, and OS X:

./bin/gbuild --commit bitcoin=v${VERSION} ../bitcoin/contrib/gitian-descriptors/gitian-linux.yml
./bin/gsign --signer $SIGNER --release ${VERSION}-linux --destination ../gitian.sigs/ ../bitcoin/contrib/gitian-descriptors/gitian-linux.yml
pushd build/out
zip -r bitcoin-${VERSION}-linux-gitian.zip *
mv bitcoin-${VERSION}-linux-gitian.zip ../../../
popd
./bin/gbuild --commit bitcoin=v${VERSION} ../bitcoin/contrib/gitian-descriptors/gitian-win.yml
./bin/gsign --signer $SIGNER --release ${VERSION}-win --destination ../gitian.sigs/ ../bitcoin/contrib/gitian-descriptors/gitian-win.yml
pushd build/out
zip -r bitcoin-${VERSION}-win-gitian.zip *
mv bitcoin-${VERSION}-win-gitian.zip ../../../
popd
    ./bin/gbuild --commit bitcoin=v${VERSION} ../bitcoin/contrib/gitian-descriptors/gitian-osx-bitcoin.yml
    ./bin/gsign --signer $SIGNER --release ${VERSION}-osx --destination ../gitian.sigs/ ../bitcoin/contrib/gitian-descriptors/gitian-osx-bitcoin.yml
pushd build/out
mv Bitcoin-Qt.dmg ../../../
popd
popd

Build output expected:

  1. linux 32-bit and 64-bit binaries + source (bitcoin-${VERSION}-linux-gitian.zip)
  2. windows 32-bit and 64-bit binaries + installer + source (bitcoin-${VERSION}-win-gitian.zip)
  3. OSX installer (Bitcoin-Qt.dmg)
  4. Gitian signatures (in gitian.sigs/${VERSION}-<linux|win|osx>/(your gitian key)/

repackage gitian builds for release as stand-alone zip/tar/installer exe

Linux .tar.gz:

unzip bitcoin-${VERSION}-linux-gitian.zip -d bitcoin-${VERSION}-linux
tar czvf bitcoin-${VERSION}-linux.tar.gz bitcoin-${VERSION}-linux
rm -rf bitcoin-${VERSION}-linux

Windows .zip and setup.exe:

unzip bitcoin-${VERSION}-win-gitian.zip -d bitcoin-${VERSION}-win
mv bitcoin-${VERSION}-win/bitcoin-*-setup.exe .
zip -r bitcoin-${VERSION}-win.zip bitcoin-${VERSION}-win
rm -rf bitcoin-${VERSION}-win

Mac OS X .dmg:

mv Bitcoin-Qt.dmg bitcoin-${VERSION}-osx.dmg

###Next steps:

Commit your signature to gitian.sigs:

pushd gitian.sigs
git add ${VERSION}-linux/${SIGNER}
git add ${VERSION}-win/${SIGNER}
git add ${VERSION}-osx/${SIGNER}
git commit -a
git push  # Assuming you can push to the gitian.sigs tree
popd

After 3 or more people have gitian-built and their results match:

  • Perform code-signing.

    • Code-sign Windows -setup.exe (in a Windows virtual machine using signtool)

    • Code-sign MacOSX .dmg

    Note: only Gavin has the code-signing keys currently.

  • Create SHA256SUMS.asc for the builds, and GPG-sign it:

sha256sum * > SHA256SUMS
gpg --digest-algo sha256 --clearsign SHA256SUMS # outputs SHA256SUMS.asc
rm SHA256SUMS

(the digest algorithm is forced to sha256 to avoid confusion of the Hash: header that GPG adds with the SHA256 used for the files)

  • Upload zips and installers, as well as SHA256SUMS.asc from last step, to the bitcoin.org server

  • Update bitcoin.org version

  • Announce the release:

    • Release sticky on bitcointalk: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?board=1.0

    • Bitcoin-development mailing list

    • Update title of #bitcoin on Freenode IRC

    • Optionally reddit /r/Bitcoin, ... but this will usually sort out itself

  • Notify BlueMatt so that he can start building [https://launchpad.net/~bitcoin/+archive/ubuntu/bitcoin](the PPAs)

  • Add release notes for the new version to the directory doc/release-notes in git master

  • Celebrate
