System->Maintenance->Update Firmware

While hovering over that menu you get the current version at the bottom of the screen.

Inside that menu you can choose between "Stable" and "Testing", each of those will show a version number as well.

Note that updating to the testing version is a risk, even if it has a higher version number. As there could be bugs in there.

    When I have gone there (The link you have posted) it just says "Latest..."

    How do you know which is the latest number vs what is on the machine?

     

    To know that, you need to read the files that the Firmware read's to check if the firmware on the server is new or not

    Doing some search on the python of the machine:

     

        __SYSTEM_UPDATE_URLS = {       "stable": {           "rootfs": "http://software.ultimaker.com/jedi/releases/latest.tar.xz",           "signature": "http://software.ultimaker.com/jedi/releases/latest.tar.xz.sig",           "version": "http://software.ultimaker.com/jedi/releases/latest.version",       },       "testing": {           "rootfs": "http://software.ultimaker.com/jedi/releases/testing/latest.tar.xz",           "signature": "http://software.ultimaker.com/jedi/releases/testing/latest.tar.xz.sig",           "version": "http://software.ultimaker.com/jedi/releases/testing/latest.version",

     

    So there are 2 files.

    Stable

    http://software.ultimaker.com/jedi/releases/latest.version

    Testing

    http://software.ultimaker.com/jedi/releases/testing/latest.version

    And indeed, you are right, Ultimaker should show what version you are going to download. Maybe that could be added with a simple query to the txt files @sandervg ?
