The version of the top level project.
This variable holds the version of the project as specified in the top
level CMakeLists.txt file by a :command:`project` command. In the event that
the top level CMakeLists.txt contains multiple :command:`project` calls,
the most recently called one from that top level CMakeLists.txt will determine
the value that ``CMAKE_PROJECT_VERSION`` contains. For example, consider
the following top level CMakeLists.txt:
.. code-block:: cmake
cmake_minimum_required(VERSION 3.0)
project(First VERSION 1.2.3)
project(Second VERSION 3.4.5)
project(Third VERSION 6.7.8)
And ``sub/CMakeLists.txt`` with the following contents:
.. code-block:: cmake
project(SubProj VERSION 1)
The most recently seen :command:`project` command from the top level
CMakeLists.txt would be ``project(Second ...)``, so this will print::
To obtain the version from the most recent call to :command:`project` in
the current directory scope or above, see the :variable:`PROJECT_VERSION`
