Once develop has acquired enough features for a release (or a predetermined release date is approaching), you fork a release branch off of develop . Creating this branch starts the next release cycle, so no new features can be added after this point—only bug fixes, documentation generation, and other release-oriented tasks should go in this branch. Once it's ready to ship, the release gets merged into master and tagged with a version number. In addition, it should be merged back into develop , which may have progressed since the release was initiated.
