VisualEditor: Expose build number
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

Quite often we get bug reports for issues that have been recently fixed but not deployed to the smaller wikis.

It would be very useful if we had build numbers that we could access (e.g. ve.version) in the client so we could tell quickly how out of date the deployed code is before we waste time debugging an issue someone else has already fixed.


Version: unspecified
Severity: enhancement

This isn't working. When I click on "Beta" to see this, it says "Version false", with a link to https://en.wikipedia.org/w/false (from userspace) or https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/false (from article space).

Yes, there's an issue with our deployment process which prevents it from working ATM. We're working on a fix.
