Get latest available version
The releases on GitHub are received with the GitHub API and the http package in the JSON format. To get the latest version the releases are compared with the
published_at key. Then the version numbers of the latest available version and the currently used version are compared. The version number of the latest available version is determined by the
tag_name. The version number of the currently used version is determined by the pubspec.yaml file. To get this version number the package_info package is used.
