bamboo variable value contains variable

Can I define bamboo plan variable value contains other variables?  e.g.,

variable name        value
===========      ========
version                1.0.0
build                    2
release               ${bamboo.version}.${}     <-- is this valid?

Even though this is an often requested feature since early 2011, and labelled as a small improvement only, such nested/recursive expansion of variables is still not available in Bamboo as of today, so you might want to watch/vote/comment on the resp. issue accordingly:

Depending on your specific scenario, you might be able to address your use case with the (commercial) Nested Variables for Bamboo add-on, which allows to Re-use variables and Unlimited nesting of variables:

There is no limit to the nesting of variables. The add-on will continue to replace nested variables until it can no longer find a correct value. [...]

However, as already mentioned in the issue, this add-on is only available for Bamboo Server due to 3rd party add-ons not being supported in Bamboo Cloud yet either.
