releasing on sourceforge
while releasing Kephra 0.4.2 on sourceforge, I noticed that the changed their system completely. Its now much simpler to use, but 3 tricks there are still. Better you know them in forehand.
Step 1: mark the folder you want to put your uploaded files into, by right click, open the context menu and select the second item: "upload here". if you don't do that the file will appear at the bottom of the filetree.
Step 2: upload a/the textfile, containing the release notes. after its uploaded and appears in the tree, select the file and check the box "release note" on the right margin. These will be exactly the release notes as before, that appear when clicking on the scribe icon behind a file.
Step 3: upload you files. then select them one after the other and give them in the same box on the right margin labels and select the fitting release note from the dropdown menu. Save this settings and do not select the platform this file is intended for, unless you want to be this file the default download for the entire project when a user uses this OS around his browser, surfing on sourceforge.net.
