I think it is simply a string, compared within OpenOffice using a string 
comparison (which is not optimal: if you have version "99.0" and version 
"100.0", version 100.0 comes before 99.0 since it starts with a "1").

I use "YYYY.MM.DD" like Marco, so "2015.05.02". It is fine to use "0.1", 
"0.2" and similar but "0.9" is not considered to come before "0.10" so 
keep that in mind. I believe more exotic numbering like "0.9-alpha2" is 
not accepted by the Extensions site, but is accepted by OpenOffice.

It's been a few years since I last looked at this, but I don't think 
things have changed much. At the time, I settled for using "YYYY.MM.DD" 
and I've been consistently using that pattern.
