To save you some time, some of my programs already support
option --version:
  dosepsbin, mkjobtexmf, pdfcrop,
but the older ones don't. Thus I have updated
  pax, pkfix, thumbpdf, vpe.
Also pdfcrop is updated to get the same format of option --version.
The updates are on their way to CTAN.

With the next bundle update (hopefully sooner than later),
also pdfatfi from attachfile2 will be updated.

I think, I have catched all of my programs. They should
provide option --version that prints a line in the following format:
  <name> <date> v<version>
But let me know if I have missed something.

Yours sincerely
