Click publish in the compiler. You will need to commit the changes if you haven't already done so. Then it will ask if you want to update the current wiflyinterface or fork it. Even if you try to update the current one it will tell you that you don't have the necesary rights and tell you to fork it.

Btw if you made a change that can be useful for others, forking is the way to go. If you have something really specifically for one application, and you have to publish the wiflyinterface in order to publish the rest of your application, then you can also right click, convert to folder on the wiflyinterface library.

Furthermore if you have made a change to a library that is useful to others consider making a pull request to the original library so that it can be improved.
