[UX] Show full version in Title bar/About dialog

Postby Nox » Sat Jan 21, 2017 1:17 am

Hi,

Please show the full version number (e.g. 1.5.0, 1.5.1, etc.) because showing only the major and minor version is sometimes misleading.

Now I have version 1.5.1 installed, but in the title bar is shown 1.5 (see pic).

Thank you!

Support. Fix this, please.

Also, it would be nice to have Build date: dd/mm/year in About screen too.

This will be changed in the next update.
Versions without subversioning won't display a ".0", but if there's a subversion, it will be displayed.
I also added a build date to the About dialog.

Some feedback on this - please can you make the Build date format follow local Regional settings?
See screenshot, please:

Yep, this is a bug. It'll be fixed in the next update.

Not fixed??? Release notes say something in date in About is fixed - what, please?
Seems wrong exactly same way! :eek:

Same wrong thing. Slashes in date, instead of dots I use.

That's right. It uses internal date formatting, not what is selected in Windows. It's done this way to prevent layout and spacing issues.
I don't think it's that big of a deal.

Ok, so what was the fix, then? :?
I think following user format is better, please!
Slash and dot do not take that much different space. So, having the slashes go to dots would not change anything much, if at all.

EDIT: I did not check different DPI settings, however. If you want, I can do this when I have the time.
My PCs - 3 of them mine, several of my parents - mostly use default DPI/font settings, except the big Sony TV PC (used as HTPC), which I think has some zoom/bigger fonts set.

EDIT #2: Did a crude mock-up edit with MS Paint. See below - the spacing is not quite right, but it will look very similar with dots (a bit narrower than my mock-up):

I'll look into it.
Regarding DPI, I think Core Temp should mostly be fine as long as the setting is static and doesn't change on fly. Like when you connect a high DPI laptop to a normal desktop monitor the DPI will drop and things can get weird when that happens.

Ok, next release will use the user's selected 'Short date' setting in Windows to format the date properly.
If you change the date format in Windows, restarting Core Temp will be required to reflect this change in the About dialog.
