-string immediately following the patch version and a decimal point. The string
-MUST be comprised of only alphanumerics plus dash [0-9A-Za-z-] and MUST begin
-with an alpha character [A-Za-z]. Pre-release versions satisfy but have a
-lower precedence than the associated normal version. Precedence SHOULD be
