      Description

      The version check file currently is just a flat text file. This is limiting. It would be nice if we could have a properly structured file allowing us to add additional information such as changelog or other version-specific information.

      Because PHP 5.2 supports JSON deserialization though json_decode() it would make sense to use JSON format. This also potentially allows third party applications to access the version check server.
