I use Eclipse 2020-03 and recently I noticed the start/splash screen says 2021-03.

It is a cosmetical bug, if any, but I wonder if it is a known thing.

The exact version I have is : eclipse-jee-2020-03-R-incubation-win32-x86_64
Java is Oracle JDK 11.0.10

Likely you've updated since then and then the splash screen will show the version to which you've updated.

No, I haven't updated.

Sorry for being unclear about that.

The about dialog says: Version: 2020-03 (4.15.0)

Do you really mean the splash screen or are you talking about the web page that's opened in the IDE itself? It's hard to imagine the splash screen being wrong while the page opened in the IDE once after each release will be the one for the current release...

I downloaded https://www.eclipse.org/downloads/download.php?file=/technology/epp/downloads/release/2020-03/R/eclipse-jee-2020-03-R-incubation-win32-x86_64.zip and tried it. The splash screen is for 2020-03. I expect you've updated parts of your installation, The image comes from eclipse/plugins/org.eclipse.platform_4.15.0.v20200305-0155/splash.bmp so if that bundle is updated to a newer version you'll have a newer splash screen.

The same dialog, but the Plug-ins tab and its "Plug-in Id" column.

Strange, in the folder eclipse-jee-2020-03-R-incubation-win32-x86_64\features I have these two subfolders:
org.eclipse.platform_4.15.0.v20200305-0155
org.eclipse.platform_4.19.0.v20210303-1800
