Steps to create a release

  1. Create a stabilization branch and update the version number in (on trunk)
  2. (Minimally) run the ANSI tests and Maxima test suite
  3. Stabilize for 2 weeks, during which:
    1. Changes get committed to trunk and backported to the branch from there. On each backport re-run the ANSI tests and the Maxima test suite
    2. Update CHANGES
    3. Check README for up-to-date-ness
  4. On the day of release:
    1. Check out the branch (fresh check out)

    5. Run the Ant 'abcl.clean' target
    6. Run the Lisp build

      1. Run the Ant '' and 'abcl.source.tar' targets
      2. Unpack the zip and run compilation on the sources extracted
      3. Run the ANSI tests on the build result
      4. Do the same for the .tar archive
