Dist::Zilla::App::Command::release - release your dist to the CPAN


version 6.025


  dzil release

  dzil release --trial

  # long form, jobs takes an integer
  dzil release --jobs 9

  # short form, same as above
  dzil release -j 9

This command is a very, very thin wrapper around the release method on the Dist::Zilla object. It will build, archive, and release your distribution using your Releaser plugins.

Available options are:

--trial, will cause it to build a trial build.
--jobs|-j=i, number of test jobs run in parallel using Test::Harness.

The default for Test::Harness is 9. The number of parallel jobs can also be specified setting HARNESS_OPTIONS.


See Test::Harness for more details.


This module should work on any version of perl still receiving updates from the Perl 5 Porters. This means it should work on any version of perl released in the last two to three years. (That is, if the most recently released version is v5.40, then this module should work on both v5.40 and v5.38.)

Although it may work on older versions of perl, no guarantee is made that the minimum required version will not be increased. The version may be increased for any reason, and there is no promise that patches will be accepted to lower the minimum required perl.
