Sorry, I forgot to add it to Makefile.am. Will fix this later in GIT.

This is normal, as GIT master (I guess you pulled it from master) gets a
versiom bump after a release.

As expected. This change was not baked into the 1.23.1 as this release
was only to address important bugs and build-system-only related issues
are not that critical.

True. We should do this. Do you volunteer as you seem to have a system
with both compilers installed and so you can test this best?  :)

I don't think we want, at least not because of the mentioned issues.
Except for maybe three or four people, I guess nobody builds Geany on
