You have already done the changes in your code and committed them. Now you want to release the code. How to do that? How to create a new version using Subversion? That’s what we will see below!
1. Go to the repository
$ cd featured-image-from-url
2. Make a copy of the trunk in the tags directory using the new version number
$ svn cp trunk/ tags/1.0.2
3. And to finish, commit the changes
$ svn ci -m “tagging version 1.0.2”
Committed revision 1295334.
4. Of course you could also delete tags from repository later
$ svn delete http://plugins.svn.wordpress.org/featured-image-from-url/tags/1.0.2 -m “tag no longer needed”
Committed revision 1296141.
No more than three steps to reach our objective. If you thought that release a new version of your code would be complicated, you fortunately thought wrong.
