You might enjoy
https://www.torproject.org/include/versions.wmi
(the top two lines are what you want)

and/or

https://archive.torproject.org/tor-package-archive/
(requires a bit more scraping)

In theory, one day we're going to switch away from wml for the website,
so that wmi file will break then. But that theory could continue to take
a good long while to come true.
