Dot release numbers in CC app

In the CC application on my desktop computer, under the "apps' tab, it is suggesting that I update both LR and PS. However, it's not telling me which dot release will be installed if I push the "Update" button. It just says "Lightroom CC (2015)" with a box saying that it has new camera and lens support, fixes bugs, and in the currently also says it restores the classic import module. But, no dot numbers. From phrase about restoring the classic import dialog I can deduce that it's at least a dot 3 but is it dot 3.1? or dot 3.2? or dot 4.0 (whenever that should come out), etc. I can't see where to figure that out.

After the debacle with LR CC/2015.2 (and LR 6.2), It has become even more important to know what dot number one is agreeing to have installed but there does not seem to be anyplace that shows this information.

There needs to be.

Agreed. The Creative Cloud application isn't the most informative and isn't particularly reliable. There are many instances on the forum of people mistakenly thinking they are "on the latest version" because Creative Cloud isn't showing any updates.

The current latest version is LR CC 2015.3, which seems to be much better than 2015.2 and 2015.2.1 for the vast majority of people.

You can double-check your currently running version by doing Help > System Info.

Click on the more information link under the app name to see what will be updated. Camera Raw updates, and some shared component updates show up as updates to the applications that use them.

Yes, we have asked the Creative Cloud team to improve visibility and reliability of updates.

Chris, Do you mean the 'What's New" button? If so, it has some text but no release number
