A) The Version of the pdfTeX manual at pdftex.org is January 1, 2007
Rev. 1.671; and its Section 1.1 starts with "This manual revision
(1.671) tries to keep track with the recent pdfTEX development up to
version 1.40.0." Same is true of the manual in my local MikTeX
B) However, I also have a pdfTeX manual with Version November 23, 2010
Rev. 655; and its Section 1.1 starts with "This manual revision (655)
tries to keep track with the recent pdfTeX development up to version
Judging by the date of the Version and the Version mentioned in the
first sentence of Section 1.1, B is newer than A.
Question: Why is the Version of B "655" and that of A "1.671"? How are
these numbers to be compared?
