This blog keeps a track of Release Management Server/Client versions starting from its inception.
There are 3 ways to find out the version number:
(Apologies for the small image preview, but if you click on them, you will get a full sized image)
You will find the Application Version, and the Database Version under Administration->Settings on the Release Management Client application.

You can also find the version numbers from the Control Panel -> Programs and Features.
You can also manually find out the version by finding out the file version of the ReleaseConfigurationUI.exe (Server) and ReleaseManagementConsole.exe (Console) files.
In RTM and Update 1, both the exe by default is located at “%SystemDrive%\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 12.0\Release Management\bin”
Post update 2, the Client gets a separate folder, “%SystemDrive%\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 12.0\Release Management\Client\bin”

Then, check the installed version of your RM Server and Client by cross-checking with the below tabular column.
Release Management Server/Client 2013.
|Release Management||RTM||Update 1||Update 2||Update 3||Update 4|
Release Management Server/Client 2015.

RM 2015 Update 3 would be the last server-client version.
For newer features, scalability, consider moving to Release with TFS/VSTS .
