Dist::Zilla::Plugin::Subversion::NextVersion - provide a version number by bumping the last subversion release tag


version 1.000


In your dist.ini:

    tag_folder = '^/<your-dist-name>/tags/' ; this is the default
    first_version = 0.001       ; this is the default
    version_regexp  = ^(.+)$   ; this is the default


This does the VersionProvider role. It finds the last version number from your the tag_folder, increments it using Version::Next, and uses the result as the version parameter for your distribution.

In addition, when making a release, it ensures that the version being released has not already been tagged.

The plugin accepts the following options:

  • tag_folder - this folder is used to search for tagged versions of your project. It defaults to '^/<your-dist-name>/tags/'. Must be subversion repository or working directory URL.

  • first_version - if the repository has no tags at all, this version is used as the first version for the distribution. It defaults to "0.001".

  • version_regexp - regular expression that matches a tag containing a version. It must capture the version into $1. Defaults to ^(.+)$

You can also set the V environment variable to override the new version. This is useful if you need to bump to a specific version. For example, if the last tag is 0.005 and you want to jump to 1.000 you can set V = 1.000.
