Hi All,
I suggest to add a new property to the NotesDatabase object to store version (application version eg.: 2.13.04 ) info. I think everybody used a "v.2.3" kind of extension in the title or in the About Document.
If a version property would be added to the database it can be checked from code or in the Administrator client or in the Catalog. It can be used as replication condítion also.
NotesDatabase.Version, 3 byte
SetMajorNumber to set the first digit
SetMinorNumber to set the second digit
SetMaintenanceNumber to set third digit
Present it in the Catalog, Administrator/Files tab, Property dialog, etc
Bests, Z

Very very nice idea

Also have the application version updated from the template version when refreshed or replaced.

This would be nice but is limited to a fixed set of properties.

I suggest to store these data in a single document that can be referenced by Notesdatabase.UserProperties (or a fixed Notes-ID like "About this database")

This document contains all the "Properties" stored as NotesItem.

As each organization has it's own reqirements, this can be adapted as neccessary.

This is not a user, but a database level property. I don't think there is a use case for versioning on organization level.
