I'm guessing this was just an oversight -- CMake uses the version that
you set in the CMakeLists.txt file. It probably just wasn't
synched/updated against the autotools version, or vice-versa.

(An alternate solution could be to skip ahead and release 1.9, as an
equivalent to 1.7, so that you don't have to have the lib version
different from the release version.)
