[Solved] OpenSSH - Correct Version Number?
On my PC OpenSSH is detected twice, the version number shown in the list of applications is OpenSSH_7.6p1 for Windows.
Here the details of the EXE;
File name and path: C:\Windows\System32\OpenSSH\ssh.exe Product Name: OpenSSH for Windows Internal Name: Original Filename: File Description: Company: Legal Copyright: Legal Trademarks: Comments: File Version: 22.214.171.124 Product Version: OpenSSH_7.6p1 for Windows
So my question is: would it be better to use the value in File Version?
Please have a look at the Release Notes https://www.openssh.com/releasenotes.html
They have a version OpenSSH 7.6/7.6p1
Version 7.6p1 is now shown, issue solved.
I'd say the string we use now is not very pretty and stands out too much in the crowd, but whether we use 126.96.36.199, 7.6 or 7.6p1 doesn't seem too important, though 188.8.131.52 refers directly to the tag in git, but that in turn refers to 7.6p1:
I've shortened the strings, so now it is 7.7p1 and 7.6p1, at least it looks nicer. And then we will see with future releases if that is the right way.
