The ReleaseBuilder does not deal with the build number. We do need that offset in Squeak-Version to compute our build number.

Then I suggest it contain a class called SqueakVersion whose class comment includes the gist of Levente's message and whose two method categories, class & instance side, are called 'read the class comment' ;-)

Hi Chris,

    but Squeak-Version is itself empty and the version info in ReleaseBuilder would appear to have obsoleted it.  Shouldn't we also remove Squeak-Version?

This question comes up from time to time.
There's an empty package named Squeak-Version in the image. When you unload a package, let's say Universes-mt.48, you add 49 (48 + 1) to the version number of Squeak-Version and save it as well to ensure that the global Squeak version number keeps increasing.
