Suppose you have following
CHANGELOG.md and want to replace the text
[upcoming release] with an actual version number instead.
# [upcoming release] - fixed flow issue # 1.1.0 - fixed layout issue # 1.0.0 - initial release
Following command will update the text
[upcoming release] with
sed -i -e 's/\[upcoming release\]/2.0.0/g' CHANGELOG.md
In order to automate it even further, you could create a shell script that uses one input argument, the version number.
Automation via shell script

update-version-number.sh and following content:
#!/bin/bash VERSION_NUMBER=$1 sed -i -e "s/\[upcoming release\]/$VERSION_NUMBER/g" CHANGELOG.md
Now you can run the command by executing
sh update-version-number.sh 2.0.0.
