It's because in apidocs we only document the response object fields.

If it's not there, it's a bug as xml response contains cloudstack
version number. Can you open an issue?

The version field was inconsistent in xml/json response, xml response
contains the cloudstack version info but json did not and hoping that
I remember it correctly, in the past versions cloudstack api response
used to have version info in both so I fixed the issues to return
version information in both xml and json response. While adding a new
field in json response should not break any scripts

This information can be used by platforms that run on top of
CloudStack and clients/scripts to implement logic to handle response
based on version info.

We can discuss and remove this field if we don't want it.
