What is Releases?

Releases is a Python 2+3 compatible Sphinx extension designed to help you keep a source control friendly, merge friendly changelog file & turn it into useful, human readable HTML output.

Specifically:

  • The source format (kept in your Sphinx tree as changelog.rst) is a stream-like timeline that plays well with source control & only requires one entry per change (even for changes that exist in multiple release lines).
  • The output (when you have the extension installed and run your Sphinx build command) is a traditional looking changelog page with a section for every release; multi-release issues are copied automatically into each release.
  • By default, feature and support issues are only displayed under feature releases, and bugs are only displayed under bugfix releases. This can be overridden on a per-issue basis.

Some background on why this tool was created can be found in this blog post.
