Atom version not properly displayed


Hi !

I managed to build a working version of Atom for Gentoo Linux but I can’t get the proper Atom version in Help menu (Version 0.1.0 is displayed instead of 0.96.0).

I tried to understand the way the menu was generated and, if I understood correctly, it seems to read Atom package.json version which seems good :

  "name": "atom",
  "productName": "Atom",
  "version": "0.96.0-4fa0b6e",
  "description": "A hackable text editor for the 21st Century.",
  "main": "./src/browser/main.js",
  "repository": {
    "type": "git",
    "url": ""

Have I missed something ?


Hmm, this seems like a bug. Would you mind opening an issue on the atom repo.
