Software versioning is the process of assigning unique version numbers to unique states of computer software. Within a given version number category (major, minor), these numbers are assigned in increasing order and correspond to new developments in the software. 

Different major releases of the software receive a unique numerical identifier expressed as three numbers, separated by periods, such as version 2.4.13. The first set of builds before release to production will start with 0.x, for example version 0.2.3. AEGS uses the following structure for these numbers: major.minor.build.revision 

The first release to production is released as version 1.0. 

The version number will be visible on all major pages of a web application. 

More details about different ways to apply software versioning is located on Wikipedia
