What is pdxversion?

Just curious: I see some published games on Itch have "pdxversion" in their pdxinfo. I don't see that field in the docs.

What's it for? Does it affect the ability of sideloaded updates to show up?

(I notice one Itch game update isn't showing up for me on-device—and its "pdxversion" hasn't been incremented, unlike other sideload games whose updates are working. But the build number WAS incremented—which I thought was the number that mattered?)

That's an internal value that we use to track compatibility with SDK releases. It's separate from the game’s version number, and it doesn't always get incremented. No need to worry about it.

What game isn't showing up? Maybe there's something else going wrong that we can look into.
