Release Guide

Updating Plugin Tags

If you are a Plugin author who wishes to ensure compatibility with the latest Forge release versions – ensure that you update your Plugin to use the corresponding Forge API version. You should also create a git branch in your Plugin repository – the name of this branch should be exactly the same as the Forge API version you wish to support.

We recommend using branches instead of tags, because branches allow bug-fixes; whereas, tags are fixed, and require more work to re-tag a new version with appropriate enhancements of bug-fixes.

Uploading Release Documentation

You must have access to project documentation servers in order to upload project documentation:

cd core/git checkout {TAG}
mvn clean javadoc:aggregate -Pjavadoc
rsync -rv --protocol=28  target/javadoc/
