I have a corresponding issue to Jims version number post
Still not being a Mac guy, I am not familiar with the function of the
info.plist and Pkginfo file, perhaps someone can enlighten me?
I have released an app with version 1.0 in the standalone settings which is
taken for the build of the bundle.
I have released updates where I updated only the app file - not the whole
bundle - and have kept the version # 1.0 and changed only my internal
version in the about menu, just as Jim, because I was unsure of the function
of info.plist and Pkginfo. That works so far, beside of the issue, what Jim
described, if a user reads the info of the bundle.
Now my additional question is, what happens, if I would change the
standalone version of the app file to 1.1 and copy it into the old bundle
1.0? Would this still work or would the OS X crash, or any other problems
beside that the user still gets a wrong info, if asking the bundle? The
reason why I would like to change the version number is, that I want to
create a new bundle with the correct version number, but still want to use
the new app for updates of the old version.
And what is the correct way of doing such an update? Exchanging the
info.plist as well / updating it, like Sarah? and what is the function of
Pkginfo? Do I have to exchange it also with an update with a new version
Thanks for any light, it's still pretty dark here :)
