Create a New Release for an Organization

POST /api/0/organizations/{organization_id_or_slug}/releases/

Create a new release for the given organization. Releases are used by Sentry to improve its error reporting abilities by correlating first seen events with the release that might have introduced the problem. Releases are also necessary for source maps and other debug features that require manual upload for functioning well.
