This project releases to BinTray. To make a release:

  1. Pull the latest code on the master branch that you want to release
  2. Edit build.sbt to remove "-SNAPSHOT" from the current version
  3. Create a pull request if desired or push to master if you are only changing the version
  4. Tag the release git tag -a vX.Y.Z -m "Release X.Y.Z" replacing X.Y.Z with the correct version
  5. Push the tag back to origin git push origin vX.Y.Z
  6. Release the build on Bintray sbt +publish (the "+" is required to cross-compile)
  7. Verify publication on
  8. Bump the version in build.sbt on master (and push!) with X.Y.Z+1-SNAPSHOT (e.g., 2.5.1 -SNAPSHOT after releasing 2.5.0)

If you make a mistake you can rollback the release with sbt bintrayUnpublish and retag the version to a different commit as necessary.
