As per the title really, is there a way to tell which version of Umbraco a particular site was set up using? I don't mean as a front-end user; I mean from a site builder's perspective, if it's been a while since you set up a particular project and can't remember whether it was a 4.0 / 4.1 / 4.2 installation.
Many CMS's have an icon you can click somewhere in the back-office that tells you which version you're running, so that you can see whether you need to apply any security patches, or are falling behind on upgrades etc. I can't see something like that in the Admin interface, but was wondering if the version number is stored in one of the installed config files that I could check? Or is there some other way of telling?
There should be an About button on the top right of the admin UI that will tell you the version.
Also you can check in the web.config for the umbracoConfigurationStatus key under appSettings:
<add key="umbracoConfigurationStatus" value="4.5.2" />
+1 to Tom's suggestion.
You can also test this programatically using the umbraco.GlobalSettings.ConfigurationStatus (which simply retrieves the appSettings property), or using VersionMajor, VersionMinor or VersionPatch in umbraco.GlobalSettings.
All really helpful answers, thanks guys. I can't believe I hadn't spotted it in the 'About' dialog box, but the other options are really useful to know also.

For anyone finding this post who is using Umbraco 7+ (although if you're looking for this information, maybe you don't know you're using 7+ :) ), you can find the exact version number at the bottom of the new help menu, available from the question mark graphic at the bottom-left of the back-end. It's not very easy to read (quite a light-grey colour), but it's there.
