Subject Re: OFBiz Version Info
Date Mon, 27 Nov 2017 12:37:52 GMT
Hi

Having the version info available somehow could be useful. Whenever a user reports a problem
on our user lists, one of the first questions we ask them is "What version are you using?"

Perhaps asking the question about version information, on the user list might help.

Thanks
Sharan
