There is currently no official release schedule for the Imba project. If a critical bug has been found that will warrant a new release, but this will likely change with a formal release schedule when development activity is back up.

The rest of this page serves as a checklist for the release manager.


  • Make sure you have run npm build.
  • Verify your current version before bumping npm version.

If the version looks correct you can proceed by bumping the patch version

  • npm version patch, if you want to change the other versions the available options are (major, minor)
  • Verify the version looks good by running npm version and with git git tag.

If both look good you can proceed by pushing your changes to GitHub

  • git push origin master && git push origin --tags
  • Create release notes that are basically a summary of the output in git log 1.4.3..v1.4.7
  • Use those release notes on the GitHub releases page.
  • Then finally publish to by running npm publish
  • Make a tweet on the @imbajs account


If you don't like writing the release notes manually / copy paste then checkout github-release-notes.
