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
