I think that, as much as possible, we should use exactly the
same version string for all installers, zip, deb, rpm, dmg, etc.
So if there is no problem on OSX, Windows, etc. I propose this
#.#~b# ==> 2.65~b1 // beta
#.#~rc# ==> 2.65~rc1 // release candidate
#.#.# ==> 2.65.0 // initial release
#.#.# ==> 2.65.1 // hotfix
Please, this has been discussed to death already. Nobody care
what anybody prefers. Unless you have an actual reason to ask for
a format change (fit better with current packaging systems for
instance) please restrain yourself.
