\ProvidePackageRCS header lines not generated in 3.11 release

Tim Harder
created an issue

It looks like the {{{\ProvidesPackageRCS $Header$}}} lines weren't updated across the 3.11 release which seems to break things.

    I've tried this on two systems (TeX Live on the Mac, MiKTeX on Windows 7), and cannot reproduce the issue. I can't help noticing that your installation path is a bit odd. Exactly how did you install the latest beamer release?

    Couldn't you keep creating official releases and place them under the downloads area? That way people that aren't interested in pulling from hg (I'm not since I'm packaging beamer for Gentoo) will have a proper tarball to work with.

    There used to be a tarball there for 3.10, but it seems like it was removed. Anyway this was what issue #46 was about, but it seems like you didn't make any tarballs for 3.11.

    Vedran, I personally would prefer not to use RCS-style data, as it's really not the sort of thing that DCVS systems promote. Would you mind if we dropped it (which would deal with this sort of issue quite neatly)?

    I know CTAN is the official download location for TeX stuff, but I usually pull from the official upstreams if they do releases. Mostly because CTAN annoyingly doesn't tag releases with version numbers.

    I GOT SOLUTION OF THIS PROBLEM

    1. open the "beamer.cls" and "beamerbasercs.sty"
    2. replace the whole line "\ProvidesPackageRCS $Header$" to "\ProvidesPackageRCS $Header: beamer.cls,v 70f9d8411e54 2011/09 $" in both files. [without symbol " ][within ONE LINE]
    3. save

    then it just works!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
