Message:

Help/About: add WordPress version to contextual "Help" sidebar area.

This change adds a new way for users to quickly identify what version of WordPress they are looking at, directly from the "Help" sidebar on the main "Dashboard" page.

  • Stable versions will link to their respective support documents.
  • Development versions (alpha/beta/RC) will not link anywhere.

Props audrasjb, costdev, donmhico, hellofromtonya, ipstenu, justinahinon, karmatosed, knutsp, marybaum, sergeybiryukov, webcommsat.

Fixes #47848.
