Figure out the API version from OnLoaded/Code

My one addon is UTC. When they reset the data I realised that I should have reset the data anyway.
If the API version changed, there is a chance that the number or (more importantly) the order of things like the Chat cateogries might have changed.
To be on the save side I disabeled my Addon on code level (commented everything out) and am now looking into a way to get the API version in my code (to store it with the data and reset the data if it is missmatched).

The thing is I don't see any way to do that with the Documentation found on ESOUI.com
No obvious function or global variable containing the API version anywhere. Does anybody here know of a way?

    Even after some digging through the Global Tables of the API we found nothing to directly find the API version. In any case I added it to the esoui.com wishlist.

    However, Shinni came up with this little code (re-posted here from non-ESOUI developers) that allwos to figure out if the addon is out of date:
    local AddOnManager = GetAddOnManager()
        for i = 1, AddOnManager:GetNumAddOns() do
                local name, title, author, description, enabled, state, isOutOfDate = AddOnManager:GetAddOnInfo(i)
            if title == "myaddonname" then
                if isOutOfDate then
                    --api change!
                end
            end
        end
    
    Not a perfect match, but it will do.
    I will propably write a small library to do that with buffering, so we avoid having to do the same work twice.
