Am I alone in seeing this ( 6.0 RC3 also was seeing it in RC2 ) after updating

I’m seeing this:
So maybe a bug from the update? Is wp-admin/about.php the same date as the rest of the files there?
Well I’m just cracking through my plugin tests for 6.0 and most have come up with 5.9 banner – but typically the last one just now has come up 6.0!
I’m not sure I have the energy to properly investigate.
They are all my localhost dev sites, each one is built the same way in a docker container. All language UK. All PHP 8.0.
To answer your question about.php is updated.
I have two envs that are showing 6.0 and 5.9 so I’ll do a bit of xdebugging after I finish my plugins
its wp-admin/images/about-header-about.svg and default chrome svg caching, so if you have seen that image recently – you are stuck with it until you force a browser cache restore.
The only option I can think of to avoid that poor UX is to version name the files
e.g. wp-admin/images/about-header-about-6.0.svg which creates its own issue in maintenance

This was a caching issue fixed by changeset 53412 which is included in WordPress 6.0 RC4.
yes the query arg solves it
