Releases


Release is a split up of the project being worked upon. The deliverables of the project will be decided upon during the requirements gathering phase. The implementation phase is split up into several phases called releases with each phase working on different deliverables. Requirement gathering, duration and deliverables for a release vary based on project methodology, the product worked upon and so on. In Agile methodology, these releases are called sprints and are of shorter durations. Here, the requirements are finalized during the start of each release.
