In 3.5.5 and 3.5.6 we followed a new release procedure based on Maven:
That procedure needed some "manual" parts to change the project version inside pom files and also inside the sources of the C Client.
We can automate more and more in order to make the release procedure mostly automatic.
We should also use 'docker' in order to have a reproducible build environment, expectially for the 'convenience binaries':
- Java version (we want to build the project with Java 8 in 3.6.0)
- C client (tools, system headers and openssl version)
