When developing an ArcMap extension, is there an automatic way to handle versioning?

In the snippet below, the Version tag can be updated manually, but is there a way to auto-increment it or let the build process version it?

<ESRI.Configuration xmlns="" xmlns:xsi="">
<Description>My Extension</Description>
<Target name="Desktop" version="10.0" />
<AddIn language="CLR4.0" library="MyExtension.dll" namespace="MyExtension">

Indeed I meant AddIn instead of Extension. Thanks @Jay Cummins. That will help. – leon Mar 22 '13 at 11:49
