BioStar uses the common versioning nomenclature that consists of
three numbers called
Versions will be presented as three numbers called major.minor.revision. Database dumps can only be loaded into the same major + minor version that they were created under.
The version number is located in the file
main/server/__init__.py can be
automatically extracted via the command:
python -c "import main.server; print main.server.VERSION"
