[Playbook WebWorks] blackberry.app.version is always "1.0.0"

Maybe this is just me, but...


In my WebWorks for PlayBook application's config.xml file:


  • my <widget> element's "version" attribute value is "1.0.1".
  • the <feature id="blackberry.app" required="true" version="1.0.0" /> element is present.



When deploying the application to the v0.9.4 simulator, the "actual_version" is correctly reported as "".


In my application, running in the v0.9.4 simulator, all calls to the blackberry.app.version API property return "1.0.0" -- not "1.0.1".


Why?  Is it just me?


I've tried placing all sorts of other values in the version attribute, but the API always returns "1.0.0".


I've also tried varying various other values in the config.xml -- id, name, author, copyright, email -- and the variations all show up correctly in the corresponding blackberry.app API property.  Except for version.


Am I doing something wrong?

I came across this as well. I filed a ticket against it a few days ago:
