I used this command in a command window:
svn co http://svn.freepascal.org/svn/lazarus/trunk lazarus

But now I don't know which version of Lazarus this is...
I am not used to SVN, so how can I find out? I tried making a graph

Whhat version is my checked out copy for example?
And how do I find/get the version?

How do I get that? Or maybe this is exactly what I have downloaded?
