  • Of course, you only actually NEED the eval if you have a dev release.

    But if you're stupid, lazy or don't mind high-compatibility boilerplate, just stick with using the eval all the time.

    • Given that I often automate updating my version numbers, I find the eval to be extremely helpful as I don't need to go through a large distribution and add that in every single time I want a dev release (and then removing it every time I have a regular release).
