Robert Thornton commented on MRELEASE-935:

I would also like the release plugin to support this feature. For example, 
maven does support the ${revision} expression in the version tag in which case 
the <revision> property is expected not to have any expressions inside it.  
However, the ${revision} expression is lost when the release plugin sets the 
development version.

I've attached a patch that resolves this issue.

> The release plugin doesn't support a version value that points to a property 
> which define the version.
> Everytime I use the plugin, the version in the current POM loose the 
> expression. Maybe it could work using the property to which it points?
