I would think that you could write a paper to the appropriate methods
journal and its review would be independent of the release to open
source as long as you clearly stated in the paper that the authors
were the sole developers up to the x.yz release.
Which also answers the question about which Journal. Every field has
either specialist methods/instrumentation journals or journals with
sections devoted to that. I would aim for one of those.
