 +  <a href=/​reference/​ft_version><​font color=green>​FT_VERSION</​font></​a>​ returns the version and installation directory of FieldTrip
 + 
 +  FieldTrip is not released with version numbers as "​2.0",​ "​2.1",​ etc. Instead, we
 +  share our development version on http://​github.com/​fieldtrip. You can use git or
 +  subversion (svn) to make a local version of the repository. Furthermore,​ we release
 +  daily version as zip-file on our FTP server.
 + 
 +  If you access the development version using git, it is labeled with the hash of the
 +  latest commit like "​128c693"​. You can access the specific version "​XXXXXX"​ at
 +  https://​github.com/​fieldtrip/​fieldtrip/​commit/​XXXXXX.
 + 
 +  If you access the development version using svn, it is labeled with the revision
 +  number like "​rXXXXX",​ where XXXX is the revision number.
 + 
 +  The daily FTP release version is packaged as a zip file and its version is
 +  indicated with "​YYMMDD"​ (year, month, day).
 + 
 +  Use as
 +    ft_version
 +  to display the latest revision number on screen, or
 +    [ftver, ftpath] = ft_version
 +  to get the version and the installation root directory.
 + 
 +  When using git for version control, you can also get additional information with
 +    ft_version revision
 +    ft_version branch
 +    ft_version clean
