Plug-in auto update logic does not detect new releases of the same version number

Reported by: jeroens Owned by: jeroens
Priority: normal Milestone: Ecopath 6: release 6.3 BETA
Component: Overall Plugins Version:
Severity: tweak Keywords: plug in, auto update


The auto-update logic is still rather crude, detecting only whether the assembly version number of a plug-in matches that of the installed EwE6 Scientific Interface. This prohibits bug fixes of a plug-in to be adequately detected and installed.

By extending the plug-in update logic to also consider a file version flag we this limitation would be solved.

Had not yet the time to cater to this. Is tentatively scheduled for release w Ecospace packages

Simple solution:

Use three digits for versioning rather than 4, and reserve last digit for revision information. Changes are needed in EwERenameAssemblies (to preserve file version), update checker (to check for latest revision for latest release), automated builds (to issue new format of version number) and plugin compatibility checks.

.NET assumes a revision number in the last digit; this should not impede current plugin strategy.
