Tested gnome-software 3.28.1-0ubuntu4.18.04.1 with gnome-software-
plugin-snap 3.28.1-0ubuntu4.18.04.1. The `blender` snap displays the
correct version now (the stable release rather than the latest version),
same for `intellij-idea-community`, `mumble`, etc...

GNOME Software can show incorrect version of snap that will be installed on
1. Open GNOME Software. Ensure blender snap is not installed.
2. Select blender snap (tried 28-04-2018, may change if store versions are
Version label shows version to be installed (stable channel by default)
Version label shows most recently uploaded version, i.e. from the edge
channel. This is not the version that will be installed when clicking install.
The logic around choosing which version value to show was changed. Could
create other bugs with this data.
Ubuntu Software, when showing metadata about a snap package, is most
of the time, likely to get information which is misleading, since it
shows info from the *most recently* uploaded snap, regardless of which
channel the snap was uploaded to.
An example of this is to search for blender, and see that the version
shows the edge channel - 2.80-4de142e0b7b and not the stable channel -
After actually installing the application, the correct metadata is
exposed-in-some-situations/5163 for more details.
