When you're running RD-Subscriptions as download manager, you will be able to push your release directly to the RD-Subscriptions component. (Enable Setting) This gives you the oppertunity to save time on all releases! The component generates the zip files and will upload it immediately to RD-Subscriptions, no more manual work anymore.
As soon as you enable this option in the configuration, another (new) tab will appear in the project edit pages. It will look like below;
Joomla Updater Settings
