Ok, so I've created a custom component that should provide a dashboard to users of the site. A critical piece of information on it, is the latest Joomla version according to Joomla. So if I would check it now I would retrieve version 3.6.5.
Now I've understood that I'm able to retrieve this through the Joomla API. I know shares developers information through a dedicated API but I'm not sure on how to get this piece of data specifically.
Anyone who has experience with this. The Joomla documentation is a little thin on this, or is it just me?
