#44122 closed enhancement (duplicate)

Show installed core version number when update is available

Focuses: ui Cc:


Currently, when a core update is available there is no easy way for users to see their installed version compared to the version of the update available.

The text above the installation button reads, "You can update to WordPress 4.9.5 automatically." The version number in the footer is also replaced by, "Get version 4.9.5"

This makes it difficult for a user to know how significant of an update the change would be, and also inhibits them from looking over the appropriate change-logs to see the differences.

The proposed enhancement is to add the current version number to the same string, i.e., "You can update from WordPress 4.7.10 to WordPress 4.9.5 automatically."
