# GitHub Dashboard #8

Goal of this iteration: Enhance :release task and use version from VERSION file

Currently the version defined in Dashboard.VERSION has to be updated manually. Well, this needs to changed. Therefore I created a file VERSION which contains the actual version of the code base. I also created a VersionFilter in the Assetfile which reads the version from VERSION and replaces all VERSION: 'x.y.z' with the actual version:

I also enhanced the :release task of the Rakefile so it automatically deploys the current version of the dashboard, tags the current code base and bumps the version.

## Roundup

The changes in this post introduce an up to date Dashboard.VERSION as well as a more convenient :release task.

The result of this post’s changes are available at tag v0.0.8 (changes). As always, the result is deployed at code418.com/dashboard.
