Revision as of 08:51, 11 August 2012

This page contains notes on what needs to be done when releasing a new version of Calligra.

This is work in progress. You can contribute to this page or request updates.

Tarball creation



git checkout -b calligra/${VERSION}
git push origin calligra/${VERSION}


Prepare yourself for a lot of suffering:

  • warn the i18n coordinator in advance
  • copy translation to stable-kde4 (use the calligra-release.rb scripts in calligra's release scripts )
  • update scripty for stable translations (edit scripts/get_paths change the get_path function, and check that list_modules contains calligra):
svn+ssh://[email protected]/home/kde/branches/stable/l10n-kde4/scripts


  • Update version info in the source code:
    • bump version info to N for libs in calligra/CMakeLists.txt (10 for 2.5, 11 for 2.6...)
    • update version info in calligra/libs/main/calligraversion.h:
      #define CALLIGRA_VERSION_STRING "x.y Pre-Alpha|Alpha|Beta|RC"
      #define CALLIGRA_VERSION_RELEASE 89 (Pre-Alpha)|90 (Alpha)|91 (Beta)|92 (RC)
      #define CALLIGRA_ALPHA 0|1
      #define CALLIGRA_BETA 0|1
      #define CALLIGRA_RC 0|1
      #define CALLIGRA_STABLE 0|1
  • Collect changelog items
