I just talked to RME support in Germany. Mr Fuchs there didn't know of
a way to check the firmware version, even in Windows. The only way to
tell is to load the firmware update tool and check whether it says "up
to date" or not. So you can only tell whether the firmware is current
or not.
I'll experiment with that a bit.
