This is actually not what we ended up settling on.

Instead, the idea is to have the ImageJ *status bar* always show the version when it would otherwise have been blank. The title bar will still always say "ImageJ" and nothing else.

We also want to make the OS X properties show the version (by editing Info.plist with every release), but that is a separate ticket.

I am actually not a big fan of trying to keep the Info.plist in sync. The problem with that is that you can easily upgrade or downgrade ij-1.*.jar and have misleading information in Info.plist.

Maybe we should discuss the title again, because I actually really like the idea of having "ImageJ 1.47m" in the title for ImageJ1, when Fiji starts it up "(Fiji Is Just) ImageJ 1.47m" and when ImageJ2 runs, "ImageJ 2.0.0-SNAPSHOT". Would be very clear in my humble opinion.

  • Status changed from new to accepted
  • Milestone set to imagej2-b7-ndim-data

Okay, we have and to address the windows title and status bar issue: the title is now "(Fiji Is Just) ImageJ" or "ImageJ", depending which mode you started in. The status bar will never be empty, but the ImageJ version will be displayed instead.

These still need to be uploaded (for which I have to activate WebDAV which also requires a new IJ2 to be uploaded to the ImageJ update site).

And we still need to address the Info.plist issue. I am in slight favor of ripping it out of the update site (it is on Fiji's only, anyway) and edit it instead.

ImageJ2 now displays a similar default status message as of 869ce618.

As of 9cd9604d, ImageJ2 now shows the version of ImageJ1 in use as well, in parentheses, after the ImageJ2 version.

  • Status changed from accepted to closed

The Info.plist issue is independent, therefore I added the ticket #1778 for that.
