> Hmm, but the "ver" output seems to have more information than those APIs.

It's always had build numbers, which the regular APIs do not, because the regular APIs are meant for detecting incompatibilities rather than reporting.

Since there are some incompatibilities, I hope they'll rev the minor version number, but I have no idea if that's planned yet. In theory I have early access to the release build already, but I haven't installed it on anything.

Eventually I think we're going to need some kind of WMI call in the platform module to get the right data for reporting. Until then, we're making best guesses from heuristics.
