Version Checking Scriptlet
There is now a Scriptlet on our WordPress site to check version numbers, and give feedback on the status of the Audacity version. For example it can tell you you are using a version that has not been released yet. We can also use it to inform a user that they are using an alpha version, an RC or a release version.
Audacity has been modified so it now passes a CommitID and date and time of compilation to the script. We can fill in specific messages for specific CommitIDs.

And here is how it looks on the download page.
Once you are on the download page, you can edit the URL to see how it responds to changes in the URL.
