How to release a plugin

By setting <properties> tags named astah-version and astah-edition in pom.xml, specify the edition and version that this plug-in works with.

<properties>
  <bundle.symbolicName>com.change_vision.astah.sample</bundle.symbolicName>
  <bundle.namespace>com.change_vision.astah</bundle.namespace>
  <plugin.install>true</plugin.install>
  <astah.version>6.6</astah.version>
  <astah.edition>all</astah.edition>
</properties>

The version of the Astah by which the plugin is developed should be set as osstat-version, otherwise, the version of the Astah running the plugin cannot be limited. Keys for astah-edition are listed in the table below.
