Default [Q] How do you identify the version of an update

I have a Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 GT-P3113TS that is currently at v4.1.1. When I click on check for updates on the tablet, it automatically starts downloading the update file, but it doesn't tell me which version it is downloading. Will it tell me the update version after it is finished downloading, and then give me the option to install it or not? I'm hoping the update is to 4.1.2 (the same as my Galaxy S3 phone), because I know it can be rooted. I'm not sure if any later versions can be rooted. The file size of the update is 587.56 MB, if that helps at all.

I just installed Kies, and it says a new firmware is available.

Current: PDA:LK7 / CSC:LK7(XAR)
Latest: PDA:MK3 / CSC:MK3(XAR)

I assume this has nothing to do with the current android version, and so should be safe to update and not risk loosing the ability to root the device later?

Can anyone confirm?
