I would assume Bob either simply remembered the last version he installed or did SystemInformation[] The second entry shown when clicking on the Kernel button at the top is ReleaseID which is 7.01. >I noticed for sometime that WRI have something about showing version >numbers, it is almost impossible to find what version numbers some >of their products are at for some reason. >For example, I spent sometime the other day trying to find exactly >what version number is the current Mathematica at, and I could not. >I think it is 7.0.2, or 7.2.0, but I am guessing as there is no >place on WRI web site which says anything about this. I do not know where to an authoritative statement regarding the current release version of Mathematica can be found. But, I am reasonably certain the latest released version for the Mac is 7.01 and definitely not 7.02 or 7.20. I base this on my knowledge that I have a current Premier subscription and I have not received anything indicating the availability of a more recent version than 7.01
