What Revit Build Number am I on?

Revit is in a constant state of updating. Each update has a build number and it is best practice to keep all of your Revits on the same build. With Autodesk pumping out a build almost every month knowing where your users stand is getting more important. So, how do you know what build a particular computer is on? Look for the question mark in a circle in the upper right-hand corner of your Revit window, click it and select "About Autodesk Revit 2015".

Look in the upper right-hand corner of the dialog that pops up. There is your build number and the equivalent update status.

Older versions of Revit will not provide the update or release translation, just the build number. To figure that out, use the secret decoder below.
