That sneaky auto-generated file got a newline in it again--rats. That happens when I run the release script on a certain machine. I will get that fixed right away.

As a workaround that should fix your problem immediately, you can clone the repo and checkout the latest master, which has a few new commits in it so the version file will be regenerated.

My apologies!

While building SCIRun 5.0 beta.F on Fedora I have encountered the following error:

log excerpt follows:

[ 63%] Building CXX object Core/Application/CMakeFiles/Core_Application.dir/
/opt/SCIRun-5.0-beta.F/src/Core/Application/ warning: missing terminating " character
const std::string VersionInfo::GIT_VERSION_TAG = "v5.0-beta.F
/opt/SCIRun-5.0-beta.F/src/Core/Application/ error: missing terminating " character
const std::string VersionInfo::GIT_VERSION_TAG = "v5.0-beta.F

Indeed, the offending source file contains an obvious error - a string is split over two lines:

#include <Core/Application/Version.h>

const std::string VersionInfo::GIT_VERSION_TAG = "v5.0-beta.F
const std::string VersionInfo::GIT_COMMIT_SHA = "GITDIR-NOTFOUND";

The problem is, this file is regenerated at each build.
It is, of course a possibility to continue with invoking "make" by hand, but I would welcome any suggestion how to circumvent this.
