Version number in setup filename

Post by larsen » Fri Jun 25, 2010 1:35 pm

Hi,

it would be nice to have the version number in the setup´s filename. At the moment, I manually add the version to the filename after downloading so I can later easily see which version I have in front of me (I store setups on my disk for quicker/offline access).

Most software projects I know already do this and if you use e.g. ANT for deployment it´s not a big deal.
