yes, current incomplete Info in the about box causes some problems. Not 
for me and my normal tests, I have notes for every download I install 
with additional info concerning tinderbox, pull date and some info else. 
As you can see, I always contribute that info from my notes in my 
reports and comments.

But when I discuss with occasional testers, there indeed is a problem, 
it's often very difficult to find out where his version is in the 
history. For these cases indeed additional info with simple access would 
be great.

IMHO it's not necessary to have that info in the about box (we should 
not unsettle users with these details). But in a version.ini or similar 
such additional info (as we also find in the .txt documents provided 
with every (WIN) Master build) would be great.

My suggestion: integrate the info of the build info text document 
(provided with each build) into the build itself so that it becomes 
installed as "buildinfo.txt" somewhere in the program folder. I think 
that's enough.

Best regards
