WIKIVERSION was never updated after the decision to go from released named by date to version number releases.

This is not very customer friendly. If you run 4.0.4 it should say 4.0.4.

It is also nice to see date and SVN build number so I would not remove that.

I will action this.

in TWiki.pm I will modify the code so

    $VERSION = '$Date: 2007/01/23 14:04:52 $ $Rev: 10807 $ ';
    $RELEASE = 'TWiki-4.1.0';
    $VERSION =~ s/^.*?\((.*)\).*: (\d+) .*?$/$RELEASE, $1, build $2/;

It is the 3rd line that changes

So that the WIKIVERSION becomes.

TWiki-4.1.0, Tue, 23 Jul 2006, build 10807, Plugin API version 1.1

For hotfix releases I will then append a -2 for hotfix two so when people report bugs we can ask them for the exact release number. And with the hotfix modified versions the SVN number does not match anything because we do not tag the hotfix packages on SVN.

why the - ? why not TWiki 4.1.0, Tue, 23 Jul 2006, build 10807, Plugin API version 1.1 ?


No other reason than - that is how it was before I changed anything.

I just added the RELEASE to be part of the VERSION and updated it so it fits next expected release number.

I would not mind letting go of the dash. I do not know if the value is used anywhere else where it may be important to be one string without spaces. You'd better check it before you change it.
