Would it be possible to go so far as to extend that to creating the dropdown options in a more dynamic fashion and simply pull the current release version from a doc or similar? It would avoid any need for such requests as this to ever need exist(and wouldn't it make sense?).

How to do that, i'm sure there's a billion ways.. read the major , minor and build numbers from a text doc or url and create the list more on the fly, in opposition to manually adding versions one at a time, ad nauseum.

Just a suggestion...

Why not have it be a text field, rather than a drop down? Yes, some people will incorrectly enter their versions, but it's less update work. We already have other.

Take a look at the "visit" dropdown box shown on ... http://core.trac.wordpress.org/browser Could that be looked at as an example, say grab the tags group and filter out X number of older tags that obviously won't be receiving support any more.

NOTE: The forum does actually have a text field option, if you choose "Other", it appears beside the version dropdown for a value to be entered.

Is anyone able to sort this? The lack of the pull-down option for current versions is causing confusion http://wordpress.org/support/topic/394990?replies=5#post-1502909 and you can safely bet that if one person has moaned about it, 10 have experienced the problem and not moaned..
