Kickstart 3.1 40.068?

Hi.

I just bought an A1200 with 3.1 kickstarts but I can't figure why it's version is 40.068 and not 40.68.

Can anyone explain the difference?

Thanks

Volt.

There is no difference. The '.' is a separator between the major and minor revision, not a decimal point. If a version 40.7 existed, it would be older than your 40.068.

Actually they are called version and revision, not major and minor revision.

It is easier for me to read these as V40r68 (a habit I picked up in school), so 40.7 is Version 40 revision 7 or Version 40 revision 068; then with or without added zeros it makes quick sense.
