JIRA Release(Version) - Epics or Stories

Does anyone know the best way to structure release content. I have an Epic with several stories that all have to be released together. This is a new JIRA deployment I am not using sprints yet since the work is done and want to records the release content. Seems when I add the stories it adds Epic.

We do Versions as Versions.  Epic's as major initiatives in a version and stories as parts of epics typically.

So, Lets take version 1.0.

That version will have a new tool called widgetnator.   We'll create an epic for widgetnator.

To make widgetnator work, we need 3 stories that might have a ton of subtasks.

Stories might be - Design UI,  Write the Code, Demo to team.

You might have tasks as part of the version.  Tasks could be minor bug fixes, a tweak to a document, etc.
