What Version Number to display
I had in several other topics the discussion with @Tom what version number should be shown in the list of applications:
- the version number that is displayed inside the application (in Help -> About)
- the version number that is displayed at the website/the forums
These versions can differ.
Here are some examples.
Version in App: 60.4.0
Version at Homepage: 60.4
Version in App: 18.104.22.1689
Version at Homepage: 4.3
Version in App: 22.214.171.124
Version at Homepage: 1.1.2
In my opinion the version number that is shown in the application should be used.
This is where users go when they want to see what version they have installed.
@Tom wants to use the version number that is displayed at the website/the forums
What is your opinion?
What version would you expect in VulnDetect?

@OLLI_S This debate is as old as versionning. Product version, product build, commercial name, executable version, executable build, ... all that have versions which may be useful. The one to display is the one which is checked, but it must be easy to check it when you "manually" verify if you have the right one.
I have the tool Cheat Engine installed and VulnDetect shows me the version 6.8.3.
If I go to Help -> About then I see also this version number:
Today Cheat Engine told me that there is an update available.
So the new version is also the version 6.8.3!
In SUMo I see:
Installed Version: 8.3.5803
Available Version: 126.96.36.19907
So both versions differ only in the last digit.
And this digit is not shown in Help -> About of Cheat Engine and also not in VulnDetect.

@OLLI_S I also think version number from Application is what many may be checking, as I do.
Here is an other candidate:
Version in App: 188.8.131.52
Version at Homepage: 7.2.3
