    While Going through a round of discssion i heard somewhere that, Release Plan is a low level description of Tasks. Is is true?, Because as far as Scrum Guide says Product Backlog is the only we can say milestone or items and it would be high level which continously increasing.

    Hi,
    My take is that the release plan is a mechanism of communicating when the enhancements will be made to the product to the stakeholders and the team.
    It is a way of viewing the Product Backlog to forecast when the Product Backlog Items will be completed.
    Another technique to forecast feature implementation is the Product Roadmap, Roman Pichler has published a great article on road maps http://www.romanpichler.com/blog/ag...t-roadmap/

    A release plan is a tool to show other people in the organisation when you aim to implement the enhancements in to production. Sometimes the customer does not want the change at the end of every Sprint.

    Regards

    I don't see how. Each sprint must produce a potentially releasable increment. A release plan is typically a forecast, often made on a rolling basis, of which increments actually will be released.

    I don't know the context of your discussion though. Do you have continuous integration and deployment? If so, it's possible that your releases into production are largely automated, and have (in some sense) been subsumed below task level.
