Add an "About TCC" (or "about debugger") displaying the TCC version in the
same manner as the "About TCMD" does in TCMD's HELP pulldown.

While the same information is already available at the command line (VER
command), this would more closely conform the typical operation of Windows
program, and would be available during batch file debugging (when the VER
command is not available).

I'm unclear what use this would be, as the TCC version info would be the
same as that displayed in the "About TCMD" dialog.

The new UI is not just for the TCC debugger, it's also a general-purpose
editor that will be used for several other purposes in both TCMD and TCC.

Only if you are using TCC in a TCMD tab. Stand-alone TCC does not have such
a dialog. Furthermore, you can use a version of TCC in a TCMD tab which is
older or newer than TCMD itself, e.g., to compare features or performance,
and you may not be certain of the TCC version of the tab to which the
debugger is related.

In that case the editor version could be a different from the TCC or TCMD
version. Both the editor version and the TCC version from which it was
launched may be of interest during the editing session.

But there is no menu in a stand-alone TCC. And without retrofitting all
older versions, there's no way that either they or a parent TCMD could
display an about box for that version.

No; the editor/debugger/ide will be locked to specific versions (as is
the current TakeCmd.dll).
