I like to play with the newest version of the game, though it might be bugged (in new Experimental releases), but now I realised that the normal EA version is actually quite a few numbers/builds in front of the Experimental build.

I assume there's no point in updating the Experimental build when everything is running "smoothly" and only "minor" changes and improvements are made, but it would be beneficial to have a hint that the experimental build is no longer in front when starting it - probably a check against the EA build version and a message that EA is the higher version currrenty would be nice...

They release the experimental for new patch development. Once they get most of the bugs worked out, they move it to the main EA branch, and the exp dies for a time; until they have new content ready to experiment on.

If you follow any of the developer blogs or news articles you'll know pretty soon.

Never noticed the grey version number in the settings dropdown - that's an appropriate answer, because it's an easy solution (instead of looking for new blogposts/articles and scan them for version numbers...)!
Feel free to move it to an answer instead of a comment and i'll mark it solved.

If you read the patch notes on reddit or discord, it's pretty easy to tell.
