Maven JGit-Flow Plugin


Introduction

The Maven JGit-Flow Plugin allows to create and merge a new relase, feature or hotfix branch in a simple way.

When starting a new release, the JGit-Flow Plugin the plugin asks for the release version and the next development version. Then a new release branch with the release version is created and the project versions are updated.

Now you can make changes in the release branch, e.g. update the RELEASE-NOTES.

During the finishing, the JGit-Flow Plugin creates a new tag for the release, merges the release branch to the master branch and update the develop branch.
