      Description

      Jenkins displays the version number of the installation in the footer.

      It would be nice to be able to remove the version number, making fingerprinting of the server harder and thus increase security a bit. 

      A variant would be to be able to only show it to logged in users, e.g. not showing the version number on the login page.
