Easy way to tell the current version of my TKL appliances?

Hi guys I was just wondering if there is an easy way to be able to tell what version my TKL appliances are?

This is not a huge big deal as I plan on updating all my appliances at some point (perhaps I may now wait until next release?). But it is handy to know so if I encounter a bug I can make a useful report or if I am giving someone else info I can let them know which version I am using (and perhaps assist them to tell us which version they have).

If there isn't perhaps this is something that you can look at including with the next release?

Since the 2009.02 release we have included a version/appliance specific package called turnkey-appliance-version in all appliances, for example: turnkey-core-2009.10

One of the main reasons for including this package is for versioning as you described in your post. It also includes the raw appliance changelog installed at /usr/share/docs/turnkey-appliance-version/changelog.

Displaying the version can be done as follows:
# dpkg-query -W turnkey-*
turnkey-core-2009.10
Hope the above helps.
