About ReleaseForge 0.9.0:

ReleaseForge 0.9.0 is a minor enhancement release. This version allows
the SourceForge developer the ability to email project announcements to
mailing lists and individual users directly from within ReleaseForge.

Additionally, the --auto command line option was added which, when
used, will automatically login to SourceForge and Freshmeat accounts
without prompting you for username/password credentials.

Also, the --config command line option has been deprecated and the
configuration file has been moved to the ReleaseForge data directory
(typically, $HOME/.releaseforge).  If you are upgrading from a previous
version  you may wish to refer to these FAQ sections for more gory

There are also some minor bug fixes and feature enhancements.


About ReleaseForge:

ReleaseForge is a GUI application designed for project administrators
and release engineers of projects that are hosted at SourceForge. It is
intended to make it easier and faster to create a new release and edit
existing releases rather than using the SourceForge Web interface.

ReleaseForge streamlines the release effort by prompting you for
information regarding your new release (version info, change log,
release notes, files to include, etc). It then seamlessly negotiates
with the SourceForge Web server, creating your release, posting your
release notes/change log, uploading your files to the SourceForge FTP
server, selecting the files for inclusion in your release on the
SourceForge Web server, updating the file attributes of each of the
files and then, if appropriate, notifying monitoring users of the new

ReleaseForge also includes support for posting Freshmeat news
announcements and SourceForge project news announcements.
