  guix --version

you can get the commit ID in the Guix repository that corresponds to your installation (i.e. the version you got with your last `guix pull`). In general that commit ID does not correspond to any release, so there is no point in looking for something release number like 0.14.0.

If you have a local copy of the Guix repository, you can look up the commit ID and find a corresponding date (plus tons of more information).

Example (my current installation):

$ guix --version
guix (GNU Guix) 574b1d0262c0e9af8aa7bbfe4998a498f2ba23da

commit 574b1d0262c0e9af8aa7bbfe4998a498f2ba23da

    gnu: python-pyicu: Set python2-variant.

This follows up on commit d65854bdda4ad5464fcd8fe6289eedc13ea82ba1, which
    did not fix test failures for dependents using package-with-python2.

* gnu/packages/python.scm (python-pyicu)[properties]: Set python2-variant.

So my last "guix pull" happened on Dec 15 or shortly thereafter.
