Sorry - I misread your question.

You mentioned the web interface, so I presume you're using sb_server or
sb_imapfilter. The version at the bottom of each page (which I presume is
the one you're referring to) is the correct version. So, e.g., the 1.0.3
release (from January 2005) has:
SpamBayes POP3 Proxy Version 1.0.3 (January 2005)
Spambayes Web Interface, 19:28 on Sunday February 13 2005. Spambayes.org
The scripts also output the version number to stdout - if you're running the
scripts from a terminal window then it will be there, or if you pipe the
output to a log file or something, then there.
We could add a "check for new version" function to the web interface, I
guess. If you'd like this (it'd be mostly useful for Mac/*nix users, since
the Windows people have the other methods), then feel free to open a feature
request tracker for it (<http://sf.net/projects/spambayes>) and I'll get to
it at some point (before 1.1b1, probably, but not before 1.1a1).
(If you're not using the web interface, then I think sb_filter and the like
print out the version to stdout if you do something like sb_filter.py
Please always include the list (spambayes at python.org) in your replies
(reply-all), and please don't send me personal mail about SpamBayes.
