Hi all,

This new feature looks very exciting for tracking reproducibility -
now in theory both the tool wrapper version (explicit in the XML)
and any underlying tool version will both be recorded:


I have updated the NCBI BLAST+ wrappers to use the new
feature, please merge/transplant this branch/commit:


I hope the new tool version string will get its own field in the
database soon (and be viewable via the web interface). Note
that string may well be multi-line, e.g.

$ blastp -version
blastp: 2.2.25+
Package: blast 2.2.25, build Apr  6 2011 13:59:28

Unless that is you go for more fragile solutions like these to
ensure a single line:

$ samtools 2>&1 | grep -i "^Version"
Version: 0.1.16 (r963:234)

$ bwa 2>&1 | grep -i "^Version"
Version: 0.5.9-r16



P.S. I would say the name <version_string> is a bit confusing,
I'd have picked <version_cmd> or <version_command> instead.
