I cannot find an "About..." link or similar in the release version of Ubuntu One for Windows. How can I tell what version number of the client I have currently installed?

Open a terminal and type dpkg -l | grep ubuntuone-client... just kidding.

Navigate to the Windows Control Panel and click the item that is—in various versions—referred to as "Add/Remove Programs" or "Uninstall a Program". You will find a list of installed software and metadata about it, including the version number:

On some versions of XP you might need to click the "Click here for support information" link for the Ubuntu One entry to reveal the version number.

Ah! Didn't even occur to me to try looking in there. I'm still on 1.0-beta3, apparently...going to have to upgrade. Thanks! – Christopher Kyle Horton Jan 4 '12 at 1:18
