When there are multiple beta versions in use, it becomes more important that we are capable of finding out exactly what version we are running in a meaningful way.
You’re using a source control system? It should be possible to have your build system automatically pull this information from your source control system system.
I don’t care if it is a compiler-provided build date, the canonical tree revision, or a hand-updated string somewhere – we just need something we can get to easily.
Right now, though, we need to check the date on the EXE files. While this is reliable on Windows it isn’t information that is normally preserved in Linux. It will make it easier on everyone if we can just get this information somewhere.
I recommend an “About” dialog.
