Well, finding the newest version is pretty simple.
For one, the version number uses a simple X.Y.Z scheme:
X: Major version number, changes on major updates/changes in the interface, usage or internal workings (on one higher it resets Y and Z)
Y: Minor version number, gets one higher on addition of new features. If it gets one higher, it resets Z
Z: Bugfix version number, gets one higher on every new release that has just bugfixes.
So, e.g. version 1.1.1 is newer than 1.1.0. Since it's only the bugfix number that changed, you know it's only a bugfix release
But e.g. version 1.3.0 would be newer than 1.2.12. Since the minor version number changed, you know it had new features added.
One day I ran through the cleft for the fiftieth time, and found that uru held no peace for me anymore.
