What I would really not like, is a stale version number in the About Dialog of my product.
But my users want to see a version number there. They expect it to be there ! They opened an issue in my bugtracker for me to add it !
But still, I don't want to have to manually manage it. It's too error prone if some day I forget to update it.
What are your tactics to automate it ?
I've found this, for example, but I find it really ugly, and would only use this kind of hack as a last last last resort:
Another idea I have is find some maven plugin able to manipulate files via tokens?
But maybe I'm outdated and there's an more elegant way to handle this with Tycho?
Thanks in advance,
