How to you determine the version of the ISA Data Collector (DC) and how can you be notified that it's been updated ? Can the Data Collector update itself or indicate that a newer version is available ?

In the browser GUI, you can select the Help->About menu option once the product-specific collector is started. If running from the command line, then the version information will be printed on the screen toward the beginning of the execution. If you want to find out version information without starting a collector, then you can look at the contents of the <ISA_DC_INSTALL>\properties\version\ids_and_versions.properties file.
The latest version will always be deployed to the URL in your post. Once downloaded, the data collector does not have a built-in update or notification mechanism. As more products start shipping data collectors with the product itself, then updates to the collector will automatically be delivered alongside fixpack/maintenance updates.
