To check the version of an installed package, I do
pkg> st PKG_NAME. For example,
(@v1.7) pkg> st BenchmarkTools Status `~/.julia/environments/v1.7/Project.toml` [6e4b80f9] BenchmarkTools v1.2.0
shows that the version of
BenchmarkTools package is 1.2.0.
However, for some packages, this trick does not show the version. Here is an example for
(@v1.7) pkg> st Downloads Status `~/.julia/environments/v1.7/Project.toml` [f43a241f] Downloads
Why is this so, and how can I display the version of the package showing this behavior?
