version String

Returns the Kendo UI version as a string, for example "2013.3.1119" or "2013.2.918", etc. In general, Kendo UI version identifiers provide the following information:

  • year in YYYY format (2013, 2012, etc);
  • major release as "1", "2" or "3" (derived from R1, R2 and R3). All service packs and internal builds, which come after a given major release, share the same major release number;
  • month and day of the release in Mdd format (November 19, September 18, etc);

R3 service packs and internal builds may be released in the following year. In this case 12 is added to the month number, e.g. 13 means January, 14 means February and so on. For example "2012.3.1315" means a service pack (internal build) released after R3 2012 on January 15, 2013.

The returned value does not indicate if the given Kendo UI version represents a major release, service pack, or the so-called internal (nightly) build.
