Missing Info.plist version and bundle identifier


We’d like to deploy Pencil2D to a large number of university lab computers and have run into an issue.

The Info.plist file in the Mac version of Pencil 2D is missing CFBundleVersion, CFBundleShortVersionString and CFBundleIdentifier keys. I understand this file is generated by Qt/QMake and these keys are not essential for the software to function, but having these keys and ensuring they are accurate with each new version that is released is incredibly important for deploying and managing software on Mac OS X. These keys are typically used by software distribution systems in large enterprise or education environments to determine if a piece of software is up-to-date.
