Display OpenHAB Build # & date in UI

I have to admit, I’m still a little unclear about all the different components (eclipse, karaf, openhab, cabman, etc.) that make up an ‘install’ but I was hoping to be able to see the exact OH build number or date somewhere in the UI. Any thoughts on how to get that info and display as a value on an item using the EXEC binding?

The distro build number is shown since today on the splash screen of the console: https://github.com/openhab/openhab-distro/pull/259.
Not sure how you would get it into an item though and not sure if that’s worth the effort.

Thanks Kai - I learned a lot about upgrading (having installed using apt-get) and using the console trying to track this info down. Now on build 436!
