Setting a new language in wp-config.php shows "Get Version 3.7" in admin-footer

I run WordPress 3.7 German, default theme, no plugins installed.

If I comment out the line
define('WPLANG', 'de_DE');  
and replace it by
define('WPLANG', 'fr_FR');
the admin-footer shows in lower right Get Version 3.7 which I find somewhat confusing as WordPress 3.7 already is installed.

Also, on the Dashboard an information pane shows WordPress 3.7 is available! Please update now.
Shouldn't that show something as A new language pack is available. Please update now. ?

The language upload process itself works fine.

A screenshot is available at

Yes, we should change this probably.

But the message is not specific for 3.7. You have to go to the "wp-admin/update-core.php" screen and push the "Hide this Update" / "Dieses Update ausblenden" button.

We'll ideally be overhauling and eliminating this separate local package thing in 3.8.

No, now fixed, I cannot find nor think of a specific changeset or ticket to use as a reference though, marking as fixed all the same.
