Don't think anything has changed from the parts we have available to fetch
that information. Actually, even worse, with the move to git a lot has
changed, as branching changed the workflow and each group might have its
own, so you can't really be sure, where you get the info about the latest
version (which branch, or which tag?)
But technically, nice to know, was not aware of it, maybe if you set it up
for each project one time it could be fetched.
