would suggest to use the class browser. If you have a bundle named 
Seaside, then it means that bundles were loaded from the public store 
repository. In this case, select the Seaside bundle and have a look to 
the status bar at the bottom. That should tell you what version you 
have. If you do not have a bundle named Seaside, look for a package 
named SeasideBase and have a look at the bottom of the package comment.
