Versioning system

The Horde3D project is following SemVer 2.0 definition.

Basically it means that, given a version number MAJOR.MINOR.PATCH, we increment the:

MAJOR version when we make incompatible API changes,
MINOR version when we add functionality in a backwards-compatible manner, and
PATCH version when we make backwards-compatible bug fixes.

Additional labels for pre-release and build metadata are used when necessary (i.e.: Alpha, Beta, Release Candidate, etc.)
