At least on Mac OS X, the latest master builds from
don’t show a useful build ID anymore in the about box.
This is a regression: while the master build from that directory with pull time 2012-10-12 22.05.41 still says
Version 188.8.131.52.alpha0+ (Build ID: c252694)
in the about box, the build with pull time 2012-10-19 23.57.57 just says
Version 184.108.40.206.alpha0+ (Build ID: 370m0(Build:0))
, and that is still true in the newest build with pull time 2012-10-25_06.12.34.
This is not an important bug for the user, but it makes the whole build ID worthless, because the same pseudo-ID is used for all builds from the same branch.
And maybe this is the symptom of some more serious building problem? I don’t know.
@ Alex Thurgood:
Can you please confirm this?
@ Rainer Bielefeld / bfoman:
Could you please check: Is this also true on Windows and/or Linux,
or is this problem limited to master builds for Mac OS X?
Screenshots added, to avoid any uncertainty:
1) About box from older daily build (2012-10-12 22.05.41) *with* build ID:
see attachment 69079 [details]
2) About box from newest daily build (2012-10-25_06.12.34) without useful ID:
see attachment 69080 [details]
These screenshots are shared with bug 56402 -- “No ‘LibreOffice’ logo image anymore in about box of current master builds” --, which may be related.
Yes, we can ;-)
