I think it would be worthwhile to update the major & minor values each release.

There's a freeware tool called StampVer (http://www.elphin.com/products/stampver.html) which can be used to set version information in DLLs / EXEs.  But it doesn't work on 64-bit modules.

Subject: [mapguide-internals] File versions...

Hi all,

Looking at the code, the .rc files generally do not reflect the current
MapGuide version number.

Is it worth maintaining these manually to keep in sync with at least the
current release major version?

Is there a utility that can be run post-build to update the file
versions embedded in .dlls (and exes?) to reflect something like the
MapGuide version number + SVN revision? (
