Hi, I have upgraded two Wordpress sites to the latest version of Akeeba Backup Pro today (7.2.0). In both cases the update was successful, however after refreshing the plugin list, the update returned. Ie it shows Akeeba Pro as running version 7.2.0, but an update available (also version 7.2.0).

Screenshot attached.

The version definition file is missing from the package of the 7.2.0 release. I am in the process of troubleshooting this issue and will release version later today. Please do not retry to update until you see the version available in your updates.
