Display currently deployed versions in badges
I suggest you add functionality to display a badge showing the currently deployed version of a specific project.
In a similar way to http://shields.io/
In the UI you would show the link to use that would be an endpoint that displays a PNG or similar containing the project name, environment and currently deployed version.
Is this really such a hard thing to add? I was told this was being considered for the 2.0 release years ago, and every time I see someone else post the same idea it's treated like it's the first time it's suggested then it gets forgotten about all over again. Would be a really useful feature.

Yeah I'd really like this. We use TeamCity for builds and octopus for deploys. TeamCity enables one to grab a badge (via a URL) that can be embedded into anywhere that understands HTML/markdown. For example, we display the status of our builds in the header of our Slack channel.
It would be nice to do the same for our octopus deployments. Have a badge that (optionally) shows latest release number, project name, etc..
Maybe something like this (statusIcon is the TeamCity convention):
maybe we could have the option to customise it:
You get the idea.
