Users are unable to determine the Version of Matterhorn

Steps to reproduce

Apart from the manual UI changes done for official releases, there is no way to tell which version of Matterhorn is actually running. Running Matterhorn 1.5-rc2 is still labled as 1.4.3. The same goes for the current version of r/1.4.4.

There sould be a simple way to tell the actual version of Matterhorn from the UI.

Since it's a feature, it cannot make it into 1.6 anymore. Moving it to develop.

@Tobias, is there any update on this?

Hi Lars, I have opened another pull request to add support for build versions to Opencast. The Maven build version plugin seems advanced enough to do what we need and it should work on build servers as well as locally.

Since the Admin UI already contains support for reading the

entry in the POMs, I would consider this a patch rather than a new feature, which is why I have created the pull request against 2.0.

Fixed and reviewed
