It is entirely possible the dates reflect the release date for

for different platforms

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 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
