Looking at several running Orchard sites, I have been unable to understand which version was it.

Could it be possible that the version be present (may be it is and I've not discovered) in complement to the actual:

<meta content="Orchard" name="generator" />

May be there is a module doing it ?

Best regards

It has been decided that it should not be done for security reasons. Let's say a specific version is found to contain a security flaw, then hackers could easily know which websites to target. It won't solve the issue but it's mitigating it.

We have seen several other CMS going back from what you are suggesting too.

If you want to add it for your own needs, it's pretty simple. Look at the ResourceManager class which is injecting this one meta tag.

Merci Sebastien.  I understand this mitigation.
