Releases are deployable software iterations you can package and make available for a wider audience to download and use.
发行版基于 Git 标记，这些标记会标记仓库历史记录中的特定点。 A tag date may be different than a release date since they can be created at different times. For more information about viewing your existing tags, see "Viewing your repository's releases and tags."
当仓库中发布新发行版时您可以接收通知，但不会接受有关仓库其他更新的通知。 For more information, see "Watching and unwatching releases for a repository."
Anyone with read access to a repository can view and compare releases, but only people with write permissions to a repository can manage releases. For more information, see "Managing releases in a repository."
You can also use the Releases API to gather information, such as the number of times people download a release asset. For more information, see "Releases" in GitHub 开发者文档.
