Ive downloaded and unpacked the new version 0.6 but is there anyway I can check through CLI commands which version i'm running to ensure the update worked?

Sure, just use:

$ lightning-cli --version

    Notice that the first part (v0.6) shows the latest release this version is built on, followed by the number of patches applied on top (127) and then the git commit that was built (prefix g, commit f8fa421). This allows us to pinpoint exactly which commit you have built.
