Small problem with Intel C++ compiler version string ( related to Intel Parallel Studio XE 2013 Update 2 )

Small problem with Intel C++ compiler version string ( related to Intel Parallel Studio XE 2013 Update 2 )

I detected a small problem with Intel C++ compiler version string and please take a look:

[ Intel Parallel Studio XE 2013 - Initial Release ]
...
Compiling with Intel(R) C++ Compiler XE 13.1.0.089 [IA-32]... (Intel C++ Environment)
...
Note: Correct version string 13.1.0.089

[ Intel Parallel Studio XE 2013 - Update 2 ]
...
Compiling with Intel(R) C++ Compiler XE 13.1.0.149 [IA-32]... (Intel C++ Environment)
...
Note: Incorrect version string and 13.1.2.149 is expected ( that is .2. instead of .0. )

Thanks.

Here is another issue:

[ Intel Parallel Studio XE 2013 - Update 2 ]
[ IccTestApp.VS08PE.icproj ]

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="Windows-1252"?>
Version="13.0"
Name="IccTestApp"
ProjectGUID="{7BD72384-E016-40D1-BB5E-4DB8B79C4DB2}"
VCNestedProjectGUID="{AFBE8A33-8F91-4E5C-878F-2D7C937B2737}"
VCNestedProjectFileName="IccTestApp.VS08PE.vcproj"

I think 13.1 needs to be used instead of 13.0.

I haven't seen justification for the marketing decision to issue labels which conflict with the established numbering system for compiler releases.  By the old system, you're looking at 13.0 update 2.

Yeh, it is confusing about the update2. It's because that the compiler in update 2 is actually 13.1. 

For update3, you will see 13.1.1 instead. 

Sorry for those confusion. It's just not everything would work as you'd originally planned.

Thank you both of you!

That is really confusing, unfortunately.

A good thing is that it doesn't affect quality of compilation. I'm very glad to use Intel C++ compiler and three different versions are used at the moment ( v8, v12 and v13 / that is why I'm forced to pay attention for so small details ).

Could you also take a look at a small problem with .icproj file ( the 2nd post in the thread )? Thanks in advance.

Sergey,

The version "13.0" in the .icproj file does not necessary match the icl version. It is correct. Right now all the Composer 2013 RTM, update1, update2, and update 3 are one product.

yes, it's confusing. Hopefully it's just this time.
