🤔 What's a Release PR?

Release-plz maintains Release PRs, keeping them up-to-date as you merge additional commits. When you're ready to create a release, simply merge the release PR.


When you merge the Release PR (or when you edit the Cargo.toml versions by yourself), release-plz:

  • Creates a git tag named <package_name>-v<version> (e.g. tokio-v1.8.1).
  • Publishes the package to the cargo registry by running cargo publish.
  • Publishes a GitHub/Gitea release based on the git tag.
