Bug report #13892
QGIS reports an outdate version when checking online for the current version

The function "Check QGIS version" reports the most current version as 2.10.1, but it should be 2.12.0.
This is due to an outdated https://qgis.org/version.txt that does not reflect the release of version 2.12.0.
I suggest to automate the process of retrieving the current version. It is usually as easy as going to https://qgis.org/ and looking in the top left corner.
