Xplorer² @ Wikipedia

Post by astewart » 2021 Mar 04, 20:30

In a fit of nostalgia, I went to Wikipedia to look up some software birthdates. Looking at
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Compariso ... e_managers
I found very old info for Xplorer². Latest stable version
December 13, 2017; 3 years ago (3.5.0.2)
There are also some question marks in the tables for features X² definitely supports.

You should get your salesperson (you) to update that page. It seems to have missed the entire 4.x era of X² !

Wikipedia had migrated much of its contents to Wikidata a few years ago to have a unified (and queryable) database of everything non-prose, but it turns out that version information is missing:

Wikidata manages all kind of... well... data. For software, it includes version data. See - for example - the entry about the Total Commander:
https://www.wikidata.org/wiki/Q80201

Scroll down to the Version Identifier.
Wikipedia articles can just embed this information in all language versions:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Total_Commander

You might see that the version information is not to be found in the article source itself. :)
