Heads up about the Version key in .desktop files

Issue #59 open
Former user created an issue

Hi, I noticed you are preparing for a new release soon, so I wanted to give you a heads up:


Version of the Desktop Entry Specification that the desktop entry conforms with. Entries that confirm with this version of the specification should use 1.5. Note that the version field is not required to be present.

Source: https://specifications.freedesktop.org/desktop-entry-spec/latest/ar01s06.html

So the "Version" key doesn't have to be bumped every time (because it's not meant to represent Wallpaper Downloader's version, but rather the version of the specification) and can be safely removed.

    Ohhhh thank you very much for the tip! I was misunderstanding completely this parameter.

    Version 4.1 has been released, so I’ll take it into account for version 4.2.

    Again, thank you so much for the feedback!!! 🙂
