Identify Beta from current public version of Cura..

Recommended Posts

1St off, big thanks to those working on Cura 2.x. It has improved a great deal and 2.6 is running basically flawless for me so far!

one (well sorta 2) little thing though, not "important" but could help a LOT with those of us testing out the beta version...

add something to ID the beta version!! when I download and install.. it 1st off tries to over write the current public version as there is no differance as far as my computer thinks.. can we add the word "beta" or a version number or something to the title/name of the app? I add the version my self, which isn't a big deal,.. well unless I forget and end up over writing my current stable version :p ACK!!

on the same note, add something to the Icon so when sitting side by side in my menu bar I can tell which is which? 5a333c4ecdfdf_ScreenShot2017-06-21at8_18_23PM.png.48673764144d2a2083750c69069373ca.png

anyway, again, great job guys!!! loving Cura over all my other slicers these day!!!

Please can @nallath paint the beta icon? I loved his 15.10 splashscreen:



Oh wow! You found that beauty!

I don't think we can do jokes like that anymore. We were also forced to remove the kittens from the crash screen :( I still miss them (Because lets face it, if Cura has to crash, it's better if you at least get a kitten!)
