Hi WeatherCat Fans
 Why is OSXversion$ showing 10.10.5 instead of 10.10.4?

I think that was caused by the "Leap second" <event (http://www.wired.com/2015/07/leap-second-causes-sporadic-outages-across-internet/)> earlier this week! :o :P

*Sigh*
, I know that you aren't, but that just another reason why I'll hold off on this upgrade . . . . (http://www.canebas.org/WeatherCat/Forum_support_documents/Custom_emoticons/pout.gif)

I'll let you know what I found out when I hold my nose and try 10.10.4 . . . . (http://www.canebas.org/WeatherCat/Forum_support_documents/Custom_emoticons/skunk-emoticion.gif)

He's not kidding, Edouard. Mine is too! But, not under "About this Mac."

Title: Finder version not same as OS X. (Re: OSX Version)

Dear Herb and WeatherCat version bean counters, .

He's not kidding, Edouard. Mine is too! But, not under "About this Mac."

Actually it is fine to have the version number of the Finder different than the version number of OS X.  However the value of the variable OSXversion$ should be the number returned by the operating system itself.  Here is the AppleScript I use to get that value:

on getOSXversion()
   -- - - - - -
   -- Function to query Finder for version of OS-X
   -- running on Mac
   -- - - - - -
   local OSXversion
   set OSXversion to system version of (system info)
   return (OSXversion)
end getOSXversion


That looks bulletproof to me, so that that clearly places this bug . . . . . on Apple . . .  >:(

Oh well, . . . . . Edouard  :(
