Before posting anything else, you need to need to do some research and learn proper terminology and how to present a question.

Basically, there is no such thing as a "current" and "last" version of a gdg. . .

Several similar non-question topics have been deleted.

We do not have the resources to deal with the "shotgun" approach of people posting multiple below-basic topics.

A GDG never has more than one version available. It may have up to 255 generations, but no generation may have more than one version cataloged. So the answer to your question as stated is that it cannot be done since the current and last version are the same, hence no concatenation is possible.
