2014.3.1 Install - Update Methods show different Build numbers for Vivado


When installing the 2014.3.1 update, depending on how it is installed, there are different versions shown by Vivado:

2014.3.1 updated via Xilinx Information Center (XIC) or manual update from the download page:

****** Vivado v2014.3.1 (64-bit)
**** SW Build 1034051 on Fri Oct  3 16:31:15 MDT 2014
**** IP Build 1028902 on Fri Sep 26 17:35:13 MDT 2014


2014.3.1 installed with a full installer:

****** Vivado v2014.3.1 (64-bit)
**** SW Build 1056140 on Thu Oct 30 16:30:39 MDT 2014
**** IP Build 1028902 on Fri Sep 26 17:35:13 MDT 2014


These build numbers are intentionally different.

The individual update file only delivers 17 files from the new build and does not affect the other files that came from the original build. 

For that reason the build number is not changed, even though it is a hybrid of the two builds.

When installing the full image of 2014.3.1 however, all of the files are from the new build, which shows the different build number.

The two installations contain the same content.
