Definition of Release

A movement of the Team’s Deliverable Results from the development environment to some other environment, for some other reason than development. Examples include alpha releases, beta releases, go-live releases, releases to a test lab, and so on. Releases are not a part of Scrum; releasing product must be done with Stories – there is no ‘release’ ceremony in Scrum.
