Understanding Siril version numbers

Starting with 1.0 version, stable versions of Siril (such as 1.0, 1.2, etc.) are indicated by even numbers and are designed for everyday use. Development versions, indicated by odd numbers (such as 0.99.0, 1.1.0, etc.), are not usually available as packages or binary executables, and must be compiled by the user. The third and last number, called micro numbering, corresponds to the number of releases that brought bug fixes and other small contributions (such as 1.0.1, 1.0.2, 1.0.3, etc.).
