Get JIRA Software version from JAVA API

Seems like an easy one, but I'm at a loss. What's the most intelligent way for an addon (or ScriptRunner groovy script) to determine what version of JIRA Software is currently installed?

In ScriptRunner, the following script will get the current version:

import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor
import com.atlassian.jira.application.JiraApplicationManager

ComponentAccessor.getComponent(JiraApplicationManager.class).getPlatform().getVersion()

Update:

Probably a better implementation using the BuildUtilsInfo class:

import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor
import com.atlassian.jira.util.BuildUtilsInfo
    
ComponentAccessor.getComponent(BuildUtilsInfo.class).getVersion()

 

Thanks Gareth, this is perfect!  I was having trouble tracking down the most-recent way to do it since the 7.0 launch of JIRA.  

Much appreciated!
