It is in the tzdb-2016g.tar.lz and tzcode2016g.tar.gz tarballs, so you
can grab it from there for now. I omitted it from the data tarball
because it is not needed for data. This was done as part of the patch
for more-accurate release numbers circulated on Sept. 5
Now that you mention it, it's a good idea to put the version file into
the data tarball too, as a bit of metadata info. I installed the
attached patch to do that, so that in future releases the version file
should be in all three tarballs.
This sort of problem may help to explain why I prefer the one-tarball
format. With one tarball you don't need to worry about which files go
into which tarballs, and that lessens the number of distribution glitches.
