[lively-kernel] Lively repository version system: How to find out what version I am running?

I cannot figure out the lively repository versioning - how do I know
which (repository) version I am running and how to load the current
(latest/trunk) version.

Two concrete questions:

1) I am creating new pages by keeping a "start-page.xhtml" saved in my
lively home. I saved it a few weeks ago from a location I cannot
remember. If I copy or open "start-page.xhtml", then create, from the
menu, say, a rectangle, is that always "the latest code"? also is
everything in the page loaded dynamically to be always the latest or
does what I am running stay the version as when I saved the file...

2) I always assumed a latest code is loaded dynamically but now I am
not sure, because: In trac there is a bug marked as "fixed again in
revision 130596", several hours ago. It does not seem to work for me,
so I wonder how to ensure to run 130596 or later (am I running an
older version or the fix does not work for me).

Hopefully I am making sense - I seem to remember there used to be a
way to look at versions and load them but I am not sure where.
