Suggestion for new version releases

I find OE pro a great product though one aspect is irritating. When downloading a new version the file name gives no indication of what version the download is, the file name stays the same. This causes two problems:

1. Unless I''m careful I overwrite the previous version. I have had to go back a version in the past because of problems.

2. If I have a file oesetup.exe on my disk, I have no way of knowing what version it is.

Can the downloads have the version in the filename? That is the system used for the vast majority of software I purchase via download.

Thank you for this idea. So far, you can only run the setup and its first screen shows the version in the lower-left corner.

We will see how this can be done, but I am not sure it will be fast. It may require serious changes on our site.
