This is not a bug, if you are running stable version. The tree of
stable is not BK repo itself, so there is no changeset notation.

But if you use bk to pull the unstable or testing version to your
machine, then compile it, the "Last ChangeSet" will be shown (of
course your machine must install bk)

If you are using the code got from Mercurial repo, you must make sure
to install "hg" tool on your machine to have those "Latest ChangeSet"
