    • In SharpDevelop: Select Build → Set configuration → Release and then press F8 to build solution.

  10. Click to files, click to "autowikibrowser" folder
  11. Add a new folder AutoWikiBrowserXXXX (XXXX = version, matching zip file name)
  12. Click to the folder you just created, upload the zip file.
  13. Edit the properties of the file (use i icon) to set it as the default release for all platforms.
  14. Wait a minute or two and the sourceforge pages should refresh to show the new release as the latest release at summary.
  15. Update version at Wikipedia:AutoWikiBrowser/CurrentVersion
  16. Now, decide whether to tag the release in SVN
    • On AWB folder in root of working copy choose Tortoise SVN -> branch/tag
    • Fill in path to be as \tags\REL_X_X_X_X to match release version
  17. Execute this and a new tag will be committed to repo
