Can we have some number version, so it can be compared by #if ? Something like:


I would suggest to use format 100*major + minor. It would ignore patch/subminor number as there are usualy incompatibilities between minor releases for non-cvs users. Majority of CVS users have up-to date sources anyway and they are often
aware of possible incompatibilities.

Similar would be for GNUSTEP_GUI_VERSION and probably GNUSTEP_VERSION.

There is already that as well, but that only tells you the version that the application was compiled with, not the version it is running under.
