Deprecated As Of Version: 5.1
Reason: Replaced by the httpd_item. The httpd_item was created to replace the version_item as it does not properly convey which Apache products this item works with. This is important because Apache has numerous products, yet the item was only inteded to be used with the Apache HTTP server (httpd). See the httpd_item.
Comment: This item has been deprecated and will be removed in version 6.0 of the language.

The version item holds information about the version of Apache installed on the system. It extends the standard ItemType as defined in the oval-system-characteristics schema and one should refer to the ItemType description for more information.
