Run  kpsewhich context.tex  and look in that file for \def\contextversion.

Or, run ConTeXt and look at one of the first lines it spits out. It
should look somewhat like

ConTeXt  ver: 2005.01.06  fmt: 2005.1.8  int: english  mes: english

The first number is the \contextversion, the second is when you dumped
the format. The second day shall never be older than the first.
