comment:1 by Ryan J Ollos, 4 years ago

I'm considering simplifying the release announcement going forward. Since the downloads and SHA/MD5 checksums can be found TracDownload and pypi:trac, I'm not sure it's necessary to include them in the message. Omitting them would save some copy/paste.

As context, the release announcement for 1.0.11 can be found at: trac-announce:dD8NKkLPTUA/anbmfwsrBgAJ.

Here is the proposed message for 1.0.12:

Trac 1.0.12 Released 
====================

Trac 1.0.12, the latest maintenance release for the
current stable branch, is available. 

You will find this release at the usual places: 

  http://trac.edgewall.org/wiki/TracDownload#LatestStableRelease 
  https://pypi.python.org/pypi/Trac/1.0.12

You can find the detailed release notes on the following pages:
  https://trac.edgewall.org/wiki/TracChangeLog
  https://trac.edgewall.org/wiki/TracDev/ReleaseNotes/1.0#MaintenanceReleases

Acknowledgements 
================ 

Many thanks to everyone who has, and and continues to,
support the project. Also our thanks to all people providing 
feedback and bug reports that helps us make Trac better, 
easier to use and more effective. Without your invaluable
help, Trac would not evolve. Thank you all. 

Finally, we offer hope that Trac will prove itself useful to
like-minded programmers around the world, and that this
release will be an improvement over the last version.

Please let us know.

Well, the checksums in the mail would add some confidence that the checksums found on the TracDownload page are genuine… even more so if the mail is PGP signed.

Theoretically someone could prepare an .exe installer, silently hack t.e.o, wait for us to prepare a release, then jump in and replace the checksum in the TracDownload page with the one of the malicious .exe.

While we are at it, I have difficulty with the following line:

"we offer hope that Trac will prove itself useful …"

I don't think that is what we do. We actually hope and therefore should read:

"we hope that Trac will prove itself useful …"

Should it also be "previous version" as opposed to "last version"?

Planning for 03-July, so please push any planned changes before then. I'll also create 1.2rc1 around the same time.
