Using custom code, how can I fetch data from the WordPress plugin repo?

In the WordPress repo, on the main page for every plugin, it displays the date of the plugin's last update (screenshot). From my own WordPress site, is it possible to fetch this data with custom PHP and/or JavaScript code? I would like to fetch this information for each plugin that is installed on my site, then display it on the Dashboard-->Plugins page.

Perhaps there is some sort of API available which makes this data accessible for all plugins in the WordPress repo?

If possible, I might also want to fetch other data related to the plugin, e.g. 'WordPress version' and 'Tested up to.'
