CrossWire has never release a module with a version number in a format 
other than "[1-9].[0-9]". Regarding the Version number, the .conf spec 
says the following:

Gives the module's revision number. Incrementing it when changes are 
made alerts users of the SWORD Installers to the presence of updated 
modules. Please start with version 1.0 and increment by 0.1 for minor 
updates and by larger values for more major updates such as a new text 
source. Changes to this conf file should also increment the version 
number. Do not use non-numbers, such as 1.4a or 1.1.3.
