I already responded to this once.


See version.4th(8).

Why *now*? I already answered this... (link to archives below)


If you say that you tried this and it didn't work, then by all means...
come back (pissed off or not) and we'll debug the situation.

The person that recommended loader_logo was incorrectly thinking you
were talking about the ARTWORK that you get by default in RC1-RC3 which
is now non-default (requiring loader_logo="tribute" to enable beyond RC3).

The "named releases" however are staying enabled by default.

And as I answered in the archives...

loader_version="whatever you want to name your release"



is how you customize the text which seems to piss you off so much.

P.S. You're not winning any friends here. We answered your question and you
came back hostile.
