    ENH: Overhaul CMake version numbering · 98c51ff6
    Brad King authored
    This moves the version numbers into an isolated configured header so
    that not all of CMake needs to rebuild when the version changes.
    Previously we had spaces, dashes and/or the word 'patch' randomly chosen
    before the patch number.  Now we always report version numbers in the
    traditional format "<major>.<minor>.<patch>[-rc<rc>]".
    We still use odd minor numbers for development versions.  Now we also
    use the CCYYMMDD date as the patch number of development versions, thus
    allowing tests for exact CMake versions.
