Did Bill Evans write Blue in Green, or did Miles Davis, or did they both?

I'm a big fan of both Miles Davis and Bill Evans. And I've briefly read that there is some contention, partially based on changing album credits, about which of them wrote Blue in Green, or whether it was co-written, or what.
To my ears, which have spent a lot of hours absorbing Bill Evans records, it sounds more like something painted with Evans' palette, but Miles was a guy with a lot of tools.
I know that there are a couple of real jazz heads kicking around on MeFi -- do any of you know more about this?
