It is not missing, it is just under Image->View->Window Info.

The info window has a second notebook tab that does just this ("Extended").
It displays color information, and it updates even with the curves dialog

Btw, you can also click on the image with curves dialog open, and it will
draw a line to the curves dialog in the spot where the current pixel falls
in. Handy for visualizing what part of the curve to manipulate.
