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...

  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.
