How do you check and if necessary upgrade your ImpOS version?

I am doing a project with some code that needs at least v26, how do I check the version my imp is running and if not right how do I force or request an update?

Short answer: imp’s autoupgrade to the latest version (currently v27), so there’s no need for a mechanism to force / request an update.

Slightly longer answer: You can use imp.getsoftwareversion() to get the current version of software (although right now it returns a hash, rather than a version #… I’ll look at getting some documentation to match the hashes with versions.

In recent versions the result of imp.getsoftwareversion() includes the user-visible release number as well as the hash.
