Which stable version?

Hi All,

I have been using the stable (M) versions of Eclipse for a while. I was wondering if there is a way to tell which stable version of Eclipse (e.g. 3.0M7 or 3.0M8) I am running, from within Eclipse?

The splash screen on startup only shows 3.0, and the About box in Help only shows 3.0 as well.

Many thanks,

the build number has the date at which the build was created.
Can't get into the Eclipse site right now to check but I'd think that you could find a changelog there to match those dates to the build numbers.

Edit: lists all released versions and dates
