If you run the shell script getSvnRev.sh in your checked-out copy, it should update - but that requires a Unix-style shell, so might be a problem if you're building on Windows.

I do permanently 'svn up' and build 'texworks' using PKGBUILD file on Archlinux.

My previous build had number 'r.567' but now it has number 'r.571'
despite that in svn revision number is 578.

I thought that version string (file 'src/SvnRev.h') was being updated
during build process (I think on step qmake->make or at beginning of make)
but now I not sure.

Was my assumption correct?
