  • Discuss the differences among Major Release, Minor Release, Emergency Fix (and potentially other types of releases) and what should be contained in each of them.
  • Correlate the tasks and steps of release management.
  • Apply the steps of the deployment process of the release version and the required dependencies.
  • Comply with the best practices of making releases identifiable via version numbers using appropriate version numbering scheme (e.g. using the version control system).
