The official and the daily builds are distinguished by the "+" in the

The daily builds has the "+". It should symbolize that there are some
extra changes on top of the version. For example, the current master
daily builds have because they have some extra changes
on top of builds.

The release builds does not have the "+" because they are well defined

Sigh, the extra information is sometimes missing in the Windows daily

PS: BTW: There are problems with the alpha1 builds at all. We have the
build for Windows. The build fo Linux should be ready hopefully today.

exactly these type of problems. The beta1 builds should be more smooth.
