JReleaser’s Release

It should be no surprise that JReleaser relies on itself to create its releases.

The following configuration file is used to create both release and snapshot releases:

jreleaser.yml

# General information about this project
project:
  name: jreleaser
  description: Release projects quickly and easily with JReleaser
  longDescription: |
    JReleaser is a release automation tool. Its goal is to simplify creating releases and
    publishing artifacts to multiple package managers while providing customizable options.

    JReleaser takes inputs from popular builds tools (Ant, Maven, Gradle) such as JAR files,
    binary distributions (.zip, .tar), jlink images, or any other file that you’d like to
    publish as a Git release on popular Git services such as GitHub, GitLab, or Gitea.
    Distribution files may additionally be published to be consumed by popular package managers
    such as Homebrew, Chocolatey, Snapcraft, or get ready to be launched via JBang. Releases
    may be announced in a variety of channels such as Twitter, Zulip, SDKMAN!, and more.
