Subject Re: Short version of the ant version string?
Date Sat, 23 Nov 2013 02:43:23 GMT
Hello Andre,

yes, adding a Main.getShortVersion() would be acceptable.

are you after a version string containing only digits and dots like what AntVersion.getVersion()
is computing ?

The version from version.txt sometimes has an alphabetic suffix like "1.7.0beta" or "1.9.0alpha"
or "1.9.0rc1".

Regards,

Antoine
