Since the version is passed in via -ldflags during build, when running go install without using -ldflags, the CLI will return 0.0.1 when running atmos version.

make build

or run this and replace $version with the version that should be returned with atmos version.

go build -o build/atmos -v -ldflags "-X '$version'"
