The semantic versioning documentation is wrong:
> The string is stored in an build-environment variable (name is configurable).
This does not seem to be the case. https://github.com/jenkinsci/semantic-versioning-plugin/commit/e4fb41559f45e7034dc1e74e2d6876db891a1609#diff-9dd9aab1c3fd6d27d7c22db0fe815d99da71441366dbf7c32386fcbe62393395.
> Additionally the Semantic Versioning string is written to a file in the Artifact directory.
This is not the case anymore:https://github.com/jenkinsci/semantic-versioning-plugin/commit/662bb852be3158ea497a486e840fb8a3e3cbe498#diff-bc468100499d3a8b0e0e81c4ae889d62ec1dc137318dbfe7b1985e611f652758 It is stored in a file under the build directory that is used to display the column.
The functionality of this plugin is also pretty much superseded by the capability of Pipeline and therefore we should provide examples of how to mimix the functionality in Pipeline.
