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This is due to an outdated https://qgis.org/version.txt that does not reflect the release of version 2.12.0.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.
