Create a new release

Releases are contained by products or libraries and in turn contain and classify versions.

Releases have the file extension .release but they are XML files and so they can be most easily edited in your preferred XML editor. You should add a default editor to .release files in your Eclipse preferences so that the releases that you want to edit are opened automatically in your preferred editor.

To create a new release:

  1. In the IXIASOFT Dynamic Release Management view, right-click the product or library to which you want to add a release and select New Release.
    The Create Release dialog box is displayed.
  2. Give the release name and/or number and a description.
  3. Specify the language for the release in the Language field.
  4. Optionally, click the Save Settings button to save the Language setting.
  5. Click OK.
    The release is created and displayed in the IXIASOFT Dynamic Release Management view under the product or library on which you right-clicked.
