This is excellent timing since I was going to propose myself to do it. I agree with Lee that we can propose a candidate version for community testing (perhaps directly RC1 given that the changes done since last release have been modest? AFAIR)

If you would like a release candidate rather than a formal release, then this would be a good way to get some experience with the release process. I would leave this for you to do. :-)

I'm OK to give it a try.

In other projects I'm familiar with, to avoid the issue you mention, we bump the shared library versioning numbers when the first beta or RC is cut and don't change them if other beta/RC are done.

And for an RC, we label it internally as if it was the final (for example libtiff/tiffvers.h content), so that only the name of .tar.gz has to be renamed once it is vetted to be OK for final. Does that sound OK? (Otherwise you have to rebuild a new archive, which might introduce new errors)

Take care to follow the documented process closely since it is easy to make a mistake. Step #16 can be deleted since FreshMeat is dead.

Will do.
