Device Details not showing full product version

Hi Guys

I have noticed that in the "Network  Security Map" Details, it states the product version as this,

 

Shouldn't it state 16.0.0.125 like  this,   (like in the help Menu).

 

The Version 16.0.0 would even be the version before the Beta release of 16.0.0.69??

Thanks

Quads

By the way, I tested after a guy posted asking about Norton and Keyloogers so I tried and that is what you can see in the screenshots also.

Hi Quads,

I can confirm the same in my installation.

Re: Device Details not showing full product version

Typically, only the first three digits matter for the formal product version. The first is the major number and generally indicates a large release with major new features and may not support everything that the previous versions did. The second is the minor number and generally indicates some new features and still supports everything that the previous version did. The third is the fix or inline number indicating which fixes have been applied.

In a shipping product, any two releases should always change at least one of these three values so there is no need to include a fourth field to uniquely identify the version. Admittedly, public betas can confuse this, but those aren't shipped versions.

Re: Device Details not showing full product version

The last number "125", shown in the help Menu is the build number which is the internal version information used for tech support's needs and troubleshooting and hence not displayed in the device details. The actual public version information is what is being displayed in the device details.
