When generating reports for JMeter, it is often useful to have a log of what JMeter Version was used when trying to understand why results may have changed.  

The known way to obtain the version is to use a BSF Sampler and do JMeterUtils.getJMeterVersion().  This is a rather large amount of work for what is a fairly straight forward need.

A _version function or version property would be very nice.

Note that the JMeter version is written to the jmeter.log file, along with the Java versions.
Comment 2 ansoni 2012-09-12 20:27:04 UTC
Indeed, but the Java Version Information is at least a System Property which begs the question why the JMeter Properties don't include the JMeter Version:-)

It would certainly be possible to preset a JMeter property with the version.

This could then be retrieved using the __P() function, which would save creating a new function.
