Release note working plugin

Added by Daniele Renda almost 4 years ago

Hi,
is there a working and effective plugin to generate release notes as the one redmine publish? For example: https://www.redmine.org/projects/redmine/wiki/Changelog_3_4

Seems all plugins I found are old and not mantained and it's not clear what redmine team uses.

Thanks

You can find information about this in #25616. Here's a TL;DR summary:

Pre #25616:
  • Release manager manually browses to redmine.org, goes to the roadmap view and manually copy-pastes the content of the version to-be-released to 1) the changelog wikipage, 2) the packaged changelog file.
Post #25616:
  • Release manager locally runs a custom script1 (which outputs two text files, one for each target) and manually copy-pastes the contents of these files to 1) the changelog wikipage, 2) the packaged changelog file.

With regards to your question about any working and maintained plugin that does fully-automatic changelog generation within a Redmine context, I can't help you much. I know there have been endeavours in this area a long time ago but I am not aware of current projects that are maintained actively as well.
