I’m using https://github.com/sbt/sbt-release to release versions of code, and one of the things that the docs mention is adding release notes with sbt-posterous https://github.com/sbt/sbt-release#release-notes-anyone
It looks like posterous is long dead, and I’m not aware of any tool that is used to write up or check release notes or changelogs.
Requirements are minimal – basically I need something to check the
CHANGELOG.md file and verify that there is a header with the version string in there i.e. “0.1.13” and if not, bring up an editor that doesn’t let the release proceed until it finds the right string.
