The easiest way (a bit manual though) would be to have a file with
version information checked in subversion with the proper version
information on the branch which you are building for the release and
then have your program show it visually or with a switch if it is a
executable.
Hope this helps.

Rajesh

I'm just getting myself used to the concept of subversion. Apparently
'tag' is one of them. Thanks.
