Version info, industry standard
« on: 2015-Aug-29 »
In project options, when i try to change the version info from 000.000 to 015.0829
it resets, and looks like this: 015.829
Also, i cant remove the decimal.
What are the semantics if this inst a bug?

It should be in the format of [xxx].[yyy]

with xxx being the version number and yyy being the revision

015.0829 should be 015.082 (Both parts could be 4 or more characters, but as far as I know, GLBasic only uses 3).

You cant get rid of the decimal point because it separates the two revision sections (its use is standard).

I would prefer to use 4 sections (version, revision, maintenance, build).

I agree with MrToad, a build number would be very handy especially if it auto incremented on each build of the project and reset each time one of the other values change

I'm have newer used that tab, and would also been nice to set any number you desire. However there might been limites on various platform, but again I'm always just a thought version in manifest and xcode directly....
