Document the release process.

This is, as far as I can remember, the process I went through
to produce the 0.1 source and win32 binary packages.

I also added a few things I wish I'd done, like stripping
the binaries and including release notes and dependency versions
in the README to help us remember next time.

= Release checklist =
Source release:
- Update OP_LT_* API versioning in
- Check for uncommitted changes to master.
- Tag the release commit with 'git tag -s vN.M'.
- Include release notes in the tag annotation.
- Verify 'make distcheck' produces a tarball with
the desired name.
- Push tag to public repo.
- Upload source packge 'opusfile-${version}.tar.gz'
to website and verify file permissions.
Win32 binaries:
- Assuming the mingw cross toolchain:
- Checkout/download latest or other appropriate
versions of libogg, opus, and any other supported
- Compile them with:
./configure --host=i686-w64-mingw32 --prefix=/path/to/builddir
make && make check && make install
or similar. Wine is required for 'make check' to complete.
- Compile opusfile with:
./configure --host=i686-w64-mingw32 --prefix=/path/to/builddir \
make && make check && make -C doc/latex
- mkdir opusfile-${version}-win32
- Copy AUTHORS COPYING README.txt include/opusfile.h to the release dir.
- Merge changes between README.txt and the version in the last
binary release. E.g. it's good to include versions of the dependencies,
release notes, etc.
- Convert README.txt to DOS line endings.
- Copy .libs/libopusfile-0.dll to the release dir.
- Copy .libs/libopusfile.a to the release dir.
- Copy .libs/libopusfile.dll.a to the release dir. (May not be needed?)
- Copy libogg/src/.libs/libogg-0.dll to the release dir.
- Copy opus/.libs/libopus-0.dll to the release dir.
- Copy any other dependent dlls
- Copy doc/latex/refman to opusfile-${version}-win32/opusfile-${version}.pdf
- Copy examples/.libs/*.exe to the release dir.
- Strip *.dll *.a *.exe in the release dir.
- In the release dir, run:
sha1sum * > SHA1SUMS.txt
gpg --detact-sign --armor SHA1SUMS.txt
- In the parent directory, create the archive:
zip -r opusfile-${version} opusfile-${version}-win32/*
- Copy the archive to a clean system and verify the examples work
to make sure you've included all the necessary libraries.
- Upload the archive zipfile to websites.
- Verify file permissions and that it's available at the expected
