Good news! Read the subject.

Among many changes, now the version string of scipy is computed with
update_version. Currently it looks like this
Its is long and ugly but informative. Feel free to change it to a better
one in scipy_version.py file. The meanings of each item is documented in

And there is one issue with calculating version numbers automatically 
(see the comments in update_version for details). Basically, in order to
keep this version string updated in the scipy CVS repository, one needs to
use the following procedure when commiting changes to the repository:

1) Commit your changes
  cvs commit ...

2) Run
  python scipy_version.py
this will update __version__.py

3) Commit __version__.py
  cvs commit -m "Updating version" __version__.py

Steps 2) and 3) could be run automatically by CVS server. But let's see
how it works first.
