Just in time for the revival of the public marathons (an announcement on this should appear later today), here is an updated beta build. As you can see from the log, we are already seeing an influx of patches from our new developers and so are getting some clear benefits from opening the source. To complete the transition from SVN to Hg, the build number is changed completely and now shows the date in UTC of the last chanageset the build is based on.

Download

Here is the full list of changes (just as slightly processed output of hg log -v) since the last build:

The build number is date and time :p

The format is YYMMDD-HHMM. FYI Windows builds use the same format.

Good job @ Torr Samaho :)

The other builds used SVN. Mercurial uses hashes to identify revisions so this would be 98e-alpha build 4aeebb963aca but that's even more confusing. With a timestamp you still get the bigger number is newer.

.. and now I see why english countries uses the inverse time convention (year - month - day) instead of the classic one (day - month - year).

epoch time would be a more accurate method of timestamps.

Accuracy is not the online goal of the build number, it is also supposed to be human readable. Skulltag internally uses epoch time though to define SVN_REVISION_NUMBER.

What is going to happen in 88 years? Will Skulltag be Y2K.1-compliant? :p

Simple, we tack another Y on there. (I don't think it does this right now, but it wouldn't be a big deal when the time comes.)

The current implementation should already do exactly this, I didn't explicitly test this though ;).
