Bumping Version

To bump major version and do release:

$ phprelease --bump-major
===> Bumping version from 2.2.3 => 3.0.0

To bump minor version and do release:

$ phprelease --bump-minor
===> Bumping version from 2.2.3 => 2.3.0

To bump minor version and set the stability suffix:

$ phprelease --bump-minor --dev
===> Bumping version from 2.2.3 => 2.3.0-dev

$ phprelease --bump-minor --beta
===> Bumping version from 2.2.3 => 2.3.0-beta

$ phprelease --bump-minor --rc
===> Bumping version from 2.2.3 => 2.3.0-rc

$ phprelease --bump-minor --rc1
===> Bumping version from 2.2.3 => 2.3.0-rc1

$ phprelease --bump-minor --rc2
===> Bumping version from 2.2.3 => 2.3.0-rc2

$ phprelease --bump-minor --stable
===> Bumping version from 2.2.3 => 2.3.0

To use a version prefix for the git tag, add this key to your phprelease.ini:

GitTagPrefix = v.

This will result in something like:

$ phprelease
===> Version bump from 2.2.3 to 2.3.0
===> Running PHPRelease\Tasks\GitTag
===> Tagging as v.1.2.2
