RM 1.2 Resource Manager 1.2.1 issue - updating PNGs


Users of my forum report to me that whenever they update resource with PNGs in it (maybe all kind of images?) the resource manager doesn't actually update the image.

Is this a known bug? (I couldn't find anything on forums about it.)

It's certainly not a known bug and there hasn't been anything changed here for a while.

The existing resource images shouldn't make a difference, so the focus has to be on what's being uploaded. Are they uploading PNGs? Does this only happen with PNG, not JPG or GIF? How about when they attach these files to a thread?
They upload PNGs. Maybe they do something wrong in the process? Attaching PNGs works but we're talking here about updating a resource which is single PNG. I'm not talking here about images in the description of PNG. PNG is a resource.

If the .png file is the resource then they need to update the version number when uploading a new file.
I've tried uploading resource myself. (Before you replied here.) Everything was working for me. Then I figured out they weren't updating the version string. And then I came here and seen your post which only confirmed my suspicion. Thanks for the help.
While we're at it - what are valid version strings? Do they have to be anything specific? Or any string is good as long as it's unique?

In general, it would be an incremental version from the previous one, but any unique version will do.
