#45572 closed enhancement (duplicate)

Show current version of WP when a core update is available.

When a core update is available, there's no easy way to see the current version on the dashboard.

We only see “update to 5.0” or “get version 5.0”. We should see “Update 5.0 available, you have version 4.8”.

I too find it frustrating to have to go into 'About WordPress' to find this information when an update is available. Providing this information when an update is available assists Admins so they know what changelogs to review before conducting the update. Thanks for the idea @sterndata I'll second you on this being a useful (if minor) enhancement.
