Windows 2008 R2 - Hyper-V Integration Services current version?

I am trying to report on an extremely large Hyper-V Farm.  I need to make sure that all of the Guest-VM's are at the latest integration services, and the only way that I can really see this is to run a powershell script on each host, which will report the integration services of each Guest-VM.  Very helpful script that came from here:  

http://blogs.msdn.com/b/robertvi/archive/2010/10/11/a-script-to-check-the-integration-services-version-on-hyper-v-host-and-guests.aspx

I just need to know where I can find what the most current version of Hyper-V integration services is?  I know that sometimes the integration services gets updated with Windows update.  Is there someplace that all of the version can be checked centrally?

Thanks!

In your scenario I would recommend installing and managing your Hyper-V environment via System Center Virtual Machine Manager (SCVMM). It makes seeing things such as the integration services version simple to see and report.

As long as your host servers are on SP2 and fully updated you can actually check if there is an inconsistency between your VMs via Event Viewer. See this link for more details: http://workinghardinit.wordpress.com/2012/03/01/integration-services-version-check-via-hyper-v-integrationadmin-event-log/

I'm afraid that although you've asked a valid question on a reference for the latest version, I've typically used a test VM against a standalone host for testing. All my current test rigs are on 2012, so I'm afraid I can't answer that question.
