    I find it annoying when the admin footer tells you that a new Wordpress version is available (for example “Get Version 4.6.1”) but does not tell you what your current version is.
    Here is a patch:

    // Improve Admin footer update notice.
    if (!function_exists('smarter_update_footer')){
    	function smarter_update_footer( $msg = '' ) {
    		if ( !current_user_can('update_core') )
    			return sprintf( __( 'Version %s' ), get_bloginfo( 'version', 'display' ) );
    
    		$cur = get_preferred_from_update_core();
    		if ( ! is_object( $cur ) )
    			$cur = new stdClass;
    
    		if ( ! isset( $cur->current ) )
    			$cur->current = '';
    
    		if ( ! isset( $cur->url ) )
    			$cur->url = '';
    
    		if ( ! isset( $cur->response ) )
    			$cur->response = '';
    
    		switch ( $cur->response ) {
    		case 'development' :
    			return sprintf( __( 'You are using a development version (%1$s). Cool! Please <a href="%2$s">stay updated</a>.' ), get_bloginfo( 'version', 'display' ), network_admin_url( 'update-core.php' ) );
    
    		case 'upgrade' :
    			return '<strong>'.sprintf( __( 'Version %s' ), get_bloginfo( 'version', 'display' ) ).' - <a href="' . network_admin_url( 'update-core.php' ) . '">' . sprintf( __( 'Get Version %s' ), $cur->current ) . '</a></strong>';
    
    		case 'latest' :
    		default :
    			return sprintf( __( 'Version %s' ), get_bloginfo( 'version', 'display' ) );
    		}
    	}
    	add_filter( 'update_footer', 'smarter_update_footer', 9999);
    }
