SST Release Procedure

Building a release of SST is largely automated. The requirements for Autoconf, Automake, and Libtool are slightly more strict (generally, the latest release is required). To build a release tarball, first edit configure.ac, changing the release number (3.1 here):

AC_INIT([SST], [3.1], [sst@sandia.gov])

Then build the distribution:

make distcheck

The process will take quite some time, as the distribution tarball will be checked to make sure it can build and that it generally conforms to the GNU build process standards.

You should also ensure that the version information in the Doxygen processing file is consistent (doc/Doxyfile).

PROJECT_NUMBER         = 3.1
