On SUMo client side, I'm interested too to know the date of release. And yes there are well known examples where it is difficult to determine the release date, i.e. the chaos created by Microsoft for its Windows operating system update 1809 of Windows 10. As far as I've read the latest notes by Microsoft, the release date has been reassigned of some date in October 2018 to some date in November 2018. And this doesn't coincide with publishing, roll-out or public availability which depended on the kind of update service in use by the customer varying of start rollout by mid-November 2018 unto end of March 2019.

On SUMo server side, it might be interesting when a version has been added to the SUMo server database of software tools detected by SUMo clients.

This is currently not technically possible because of the way SUMo server "dynamically computes" current version number. However, I understand the request and i'll investigate if I can find a reliable way to do it.

One way requires quite some refactoring including change in protocol. Instead of considering consolidated tool name and its version as a signature value it should be replaced by considering it a vector. Then consolidated tool name, version and bit edition can just be components of such a vector and can be added by tool edition and operating system just to name the most relevant dependency factors resp. dimensions. Then there may be various versions of a tool be current as there are already various versions in state beta, depending on this vector resp. ignoring components for this determination. Switching of current signature consideration to more complex vector consideration may be a transition before changing the determination of current.

About difficulty to determine the release date. As for me I try to find release date from official site news or changelogs. If there is no such info, I see if file is digitally signed. If it is then I use the date of signing.

I'd prefer to avoid manual action to set these dates. I'd better look for automatic computation on server side, along with detection of most up to date version. therefore it's a complex, long term item.

Then I repeat that in many cases you can do it automatically by using the date of signing. In other cases may be the last modified date value could be used.

Yes, i agree, but this require an adaptation of the client/server protocol.
