Math.NET Filtering


Building Math.NET Filtering

If you do not want to use the official binaries, or if you like to modify, debug or contribute, you can compile locally either using Visual Studio or manually with the build scripts.

VisualStudio or Xamarin Studio

We clearly separate dependency management from the IDE, you should therefore run restore.cmd or restore.sh once after every git checkout in order to restore the dependencies exactly as defined. Otherwise Visual Studio and other IDEs may fail to compile or provide correct IntelliSense.

Tests can be run with the usual integrated NUnit test runners or ReSharper.

MSBuild or XBuild

Instead of a compatible IDE you can also build the solutions directly with msbuild, or on Mono with xbuild. You may need to run restore.cmd or restore.sh before, once after every git checkout in order to restore the dependencies.

1: 
2: 
3: 
restore.cmd (or restore.sh)              # restore dependencies (once)
msbuild MathNet.Filtering.sln            # only build for .Net 4 (main solution)
xbuild MathNet.Filtering.sln             # build with Mono, e.g. on Linux or Mac

FAKE

The fully automated build including unit tests, documentation and api reference, NuGet and Zip packages is using FAKE.

FAKE itself is not included in the repository but it will download and bootstrap itself automatically when build.cmd is run the first time. Note that this step is not required when using Visual Studio or msbuild directly.

./build.sh   # normal build (.Net 4.0), run unit tests (Mono on Linux/Mac, .Net on Windows)

build.cmd Build              # normal build (.Net 4.0)
build.cmd Build incremental  # normal build, incremental (.Net 4.0)

build.cmd Test        # normal build (.Net 4.0), run unit tests
build.cmd Test quick  # normal build (.Net 4.0), run unit tests except long running ones

build.cmd Clean  # cleanup build artifacts
build.cmd Docs   # generate documentation (also DocsDev, DocsWatch)
build.cmd Api    # generate api reference
build.cmd Zip    # generate zip packages (.Net 4.0)
build.cmd NuGet  # generate NuGet packages (.Net 4.0)

build.cmd All    # build, test, docs, api reference (.Net 4.0)

If the build or tests fail claiming that FSharp.Core was not be found, see fsharp.org or install the Visual F# 3.0 Tools directly.

Creating a Release

While only maintainers can make official releases published on NuGet and referred to from the website, you can use the same tools to make your own releases for your own purposes.

Versioning is controlled by the release notes. Before building a new version, first add a new release header and change notes on top of the RELEASENOTES.md document in the root directory. The fake builds pick this up and propagate it to the assembly info files automatically.

The build can then be launched by calling:

1: 
2: 
3: 
build.sh All release    # full release build
build.sh NuGet release  # if you only need NuGet packages
build.sh Zip release    # if you only need Zip packages

The build script will print the current version as part of the the header banner, which is also included in the release notes document in the build artifacts. Example:

 1:

 5:

// Math.NET Filtering  v2.3.0-beta1

The artifacts are then ready in the out/packages directory.

Official Release Process (Maintainers only)

  • Update RELEASENOTES.md file with relevant changes, attributed by contributor (if external). Set date.

  • Update CONTRIBUTORS.md file (via git shortlog -sn)

  • Build Release:

    1: 
    
    build.sh All release
    
  • Commit and push release notes and (auto-updated) assembly info files with new "Release: v1.2.3" commit
  • Publish Release:

    1: 
    2: 
    3: 
    4: 
    5: 
    
    build.sh PublishDocs
    build.sh PublishApi
    build.sh PublishTag
    build.sh PublishMirrors
    build.sh PublishNuGet
    

    In theory there is also a Publish target to do this in one step, unfortunately publishing to the NuGet gallery is quite unreliable.

  • Create new Codeplex and GitHub release, attach Zip files (to be automated)
  • Copy artifacts to release archive (to be automated)

  • Consider a tweet via @MathDotNet

  • Consider a post to the Google+ site
