Returns the latest version of KoLmafia pertaining to your current build.
Will tell you when there is a new version of mafia
string vers = get_version();
string page = visit_url("http://sourceforge.net/projects/kolmafia/files/");
string current = substring ( page, index_of ( page , "Download Now" ) , last_index_of ( page , "View all files" ) );
if (!contains_text( current , vers ))
print ("There is a new version. Go get it here http://sourceforge.net/projects/kolmafia/files/", "red");
print ("You are already using the most current version of KoLmafia.", "blue");
The following example prompts the user to update KoLmafia so as to handle newly introduced items and locations.
if ( to_float( get_version() ) < 14.1 ) //Check Vanya's Castle and Kegger in the Woods
abort( "The current version does not support Uncle P's maps. Please update KoLmafia." );
Note that a revision is distinct from a build in that a revision is a developer-sanctioned release of enough significance as to be promoted for the general public's use. When using a daily build, this function returns the most recent official version.
