What is up with this executable naming by folder name?

    [Edit] Nevermind, they changed the naming from the application name and has nothing to do with folder.

    I wonder if this is somehow documented somewhere?

    The behavior was changed for 2018.1. I believe there was a lot of complaining when they split out UnityPlayer.dll from the main executable in 2017.2, where people ran into problems with every new build overwriting this DLL when saving multiple builds to the same folder as they had been doing previously without issue. I think the change in 2018.1 was the solution to that.
