Try these:

  rakudobrew current
  rakudobrew versions
  rakudobrew switch 2016.01.1
  rakudobrew current

What you say about previous upgrades sounds a bit weird to me -
it's true that I only started with 2015.12, but with the current at
that time version of rakudobrew, it always left me at the known-good
version after an upgrade, it never switched automatically to
the just-built one; I've always had to "rakudobrew switch" by hand.
It's possible that earlier versions would switch automatically, but
the current behavior actually sounds reasonable from a reliability
point of view, too.
