Details

The Macintosh Installer info identidies the Mozilla 0.9.5 Milestone Installer as
Mozila 0.9.4. 

Actual text:
Version: XPInstall 1.1
         Mozilla 0.9.4 Installer

Expected text:
Version: XPInstall 1.1
         Mozilla 0.9.5 Installer

I'm not sure if we have resources to fix this but it has already caused great
confusion for testers. 

Additional Info: The User Agent has been updated and the Show info for the
Mozilla application itself displays the correct 0.9.5 string.  This does not
affect the OS X builds because they don't have an installer (I think)
Yep, this was discovered with the Netscape installer last Friday and got fixed
just on time for Netscape next release. (for netscape engineers, this is in
bugscape 10609)

The fix is to update a couple of strings in a binary resource file:
mozilla/xpinstall/wizard/mac/rsrc/Mozilla.rsrc

This doesn't affect anything _but_ the Installer's "Get info" string in the
finder. All other instances of the product version inside of Mozilla will show 0.9.5

reassigning to myself, targeting 0.9.6

Target Milestone: --- → mozilla0.9.6
It's more important that a reliable process be put in place to ensure that each
and every milestone and nightly release bears the proper version on the
Installer. ("vers" resource #2).
...and yes, this means nightlies need to get 0.9.5+.
