Releases are provided from an open source platform
Releases can directly be seen in GitHub and linked in the Readme
Jenkins can upload the releases easily (http://stackoverflow.com/questions/24585609/upload-build-artifact-to-github-as-release-in-jenkins)
A pre-release flag is available at GitHub to mark our preview versions
For the homepage we defined a release description format that the homepage guys read in order to know which artefacts to provide on the homepage. We can keep the format for now, but have to adapt the location of the artefact.
