I may have asked this before, but I can't find that discussion, if it exists.
Basically, what I would like to do is to ensure that the output file name (appname.apk for Android) may contain the version number. I.e. I would like to let the .apk file be called appname-1.3.71.apk when I build version 1.3.71, the one specified in build.yml
I remember that my colleague did manage to do this by hacking some files in the install directory, but I would prefer a solution which would survive any upgrade, and preferably something that might be included in the project.
You can customize the Rakefile of your application. Either make your own task which depends on default Rhodes tasks, and implement any custom logic there, or, if you want to keep executing original tasks ( if you are using RhoStudio etc ), you can add pre- and post- task handlers with rake-hooks.
