Versioning and Releasing๐Ÿ”—


BetonQuest follows the Semantic Versioning specification.

We adapt the specification with these version types: * 1.12.0 for git version tags v* (in the official repository) * 1.12.0-DEV-1 for commits to main or branches called main_v* (in the official repository) * 1.12.0-DEV-ARTIFACT-5522 for commits to other branches (or repos) and Pull requests * 1.12.0-DEV-UNOFFICAL for local builds

Only use the three digits(Major, Minor, Patch) to specify versions in files like the pom.xml. All suffixes are set by the build-pipeline.

The officially distributed jar does not contain the version in its name due to limits with the Spigot updater. Therefore, it's named BetonQuest.jar. The version can only be seen ingame by using /q version.


This project has a custom build-pipeline that utilizes GitHub('s) actions.

Step 1: Prerequisites๐Ÿ”—

Check out the remote branch or commit, that you want to use for the release. Make sure that the current version in all the files (pom.xml etc.) is the correct version that should be used for the release.

Step 2: Build a release๐Ÿ”—

Run the script ./.github/scripts/ It leads you through the creation of a release. If you run into errors you may need to do the script's release steps manually.
