Learn and practice the functionalities of release in the GitHub API.


A GitHub release is a deployable iteration of software packaged with binary files and release notes. It acts the same way as an application update. The binary files help users find a specific version of the application. The release notes include all the details of upgrades or features added to the product in that release. Releases are based on Git tags denoting a point in the repository’s history. These tags are essential in defining a release. The tag date will vary from the release date if they are created on different dates.
