The Release Burn Down is a technique to display publicly the progress of the current release.

Typically a Release Burn Down graph is used. On the vertical axis it shows the work remaining for a release. On the horizontal axis it shows the Sprints of a release. The Product Owner updates the Release Burn Down every Sprint based on the velocity and the estimations of the the Developer. Often the Release Burn Down is used for the complete product, showing the Burn Down for all releases.

To create this graph, determine how much work remains by summing the Product Backlog estimates every Sprint. The amount of work remaining for the releases of a product is the sum of the work remaining for all Product Backlog items in the Product Backlog.

By drawing a line through the points on the graph, the Developer and the Product Owner can manage the overall progress for a product.
