Go to "Window" menu and then "Preferences". Then on the left, expand "Maven" and then click on "Installations".

On the right you might be using an "embedded" version where it actually states what version you are using. If you want to change the version being used, then you have to do a standard install of Maven (outside of Eclispe) and then on the same preference page as above, click on "Add..." on the right of the window and navigate to the installation directory of the Maven version you have installed. Then make sure that this entry's checkbox is ticked so that it is used (as opposed to the embedded installation).

What the number 3.0.4 /1.2.0.20120903-0645 means please advise
It's just the version of the Maven software.  The 3.0.4 is the external/public version number, this would be updated every time a release of the software is made public. The 1.2.0.20120903-0645 would be an internal version number. The 1.2.0 part just denotes major.minor.revision number using some definition particular to the Maven developers. The 20120903 is obviously a date, probably the build date, and the 0645 would be a build number (auto incremented everytime the build occurs)

The 3.0.4 part is the most important as that is what everything would be referenced off, such as bugs, etc. The date is useful just as info to get an idea as to how old the build is.
