Hi Andras

Thank you for your quick and enlightening reply!

Fair enough :)

Aha! I knew they meant something :) But that was the first block of
characters from the About box. How do I know if that version is the
same as e.g. master~2011-12-02_22.36.35_libodev35.exe???

Yes. That makes sense. But build or sub-build is bumped each there is
a new commit, right? Can't this simply be a 7 digit number instead of
4f11d0a? Or increase the digit number to 10. Or parse it as blocks of
5 digits... Anything that a human brain can understand...

And keep that same code in the build name, the about box, etc
