Hi Alvaro

Yes, that was a last-minute 'improvement', which I thought might help to avoid 
different versions all with the same name.  Originally, I had a help menu that 
had an 'about' that gave the version, but, I thought, I had to lose that when 
I did the plugin, which had no menu bar.  As we're talking here just about the 
stand-alone, I'll see if I can quickly put that back, or find another way.

RL?  Not Rugby League, I don't suppose.
