after upgrade to 2.4.6 no more display of version number in backend bottom line - shows only "SilverStripe CMS" - but no version number as in all versions before.

Yes, the version number is missing here too. (Upgraded from 2.4.5. to 2.4.6).

Ok, in sapphire/silverstripe_version I only find:


In SS 2.4.5 the line reads:

does anyone know where to insert the missing version number?
The dashboard module shows that a never version (2.4.5) is available.


i edited 2 files:
Now the dashboard doesnt inform me, that a "never" 2.4.5 is available.

Thats an oversight on our first release from git instead of SVN, where these magic strings are automatically replaced on "svn export". Will be fixed with the next release, sorry about that!

Hey Ingo, did I miss something? the new 2.4.7 didn't have it either - is there a safe place I can add it myself? What do you recommend? It's so nice to have the version there...
Thanks in advance.

Sorry about that. I've now added this to the build file in which ensures that the next release contains this information again.

Also changed the sapphire/cms logic accordingly: - This change is applied to all maintained releases (back to 2.3), as we're no longer building any of those via "svn export".

I think the build.xml file is not working still. There is no version for the latest 2.4.8 release (Oct. 31, 2012). Just FYI - the file: silverstripe_version is blank as well (I know the $URL$ substitution used to be there... but now the build is supposed to put it there (I think)).
Thanks - I can update myself, but don't know where?

@ChubChub I updated the silverstripe_version file in the /sapphire folder to "2.4.8" and then refreshed the admin panel. The version number is showing up now.
