How to set CFBundleVersion?

Yep I meant CFBundleVersion.

Does the bundler allow me to specify the location of a info.plst to use? That way I can get the one the bundler has created, modify it to include the new info.plist with the CFBundleVersion set to what I need and then run the bundler to use that info.plist.

This is a bug for 8u40:

In the mean time I took the info.plist, used the drop-in-resource facility, and provided my own template. Then I hand incremented the CFBundle.

If you run with verbose set the Info.PList the bundler provides internally will be saved to a temp directory, and you can just modify it from there.

I can confirm from personal use the workaround I just described works.
