 I couldn't find any trac tickets or commits that referenced this, so I
 hope this isn't a duplicate.

 I would find it helpful to know what my current version of WordPress is
 before agreeing to update to the latest version. While admins can find the
 current version of WordPress on the Dashboard and in the footer, the
 footer changes to "Get Version #.#" which means you have no reference when
 you are on `/wp-admin/update-core.php`

 It's just a simple usability update that helps reassure what you are
 agreeing to. I'd like to know that I'm going from version "what" to
 version "what" before I click the button.
