I recently compiled RStudio Desktop for use on Arch Linux. Everything seems to working but when I go to the Help menu > About RStudio, I am told the version is 99.9.9, which I assume is the result of some minor error in the source code that writes the version number. The source code was the e015d01 commit from Aug 20.
I am not too bothered by this, assuming everything else is working, but is there some other way of finding out, e.g. from a command in the R console, what version of RStudio I am using?
p.s. I have been using RStudio on Arch Linux for many years, so it's not as if RStudio doesn't play nice with Arch. It does. I've never noticed this issue before though.
