Trying to understand how version releases work on GitHub. In particular the DotSpatial library https://github.com/DotSpatial/DotSpatial.
If I download the master branch and compile it, the results are the DLLs are all at version 126.96.36.199.
However if I just want the compiled DLLs that are ready for use I can click on the link https://ci.appveyor.com/api/projects/mogikanin/dotspatial/artifacts/Source/bin/Release.zip?branch=master This contains the DLLs with version 188.8.131.522.
How do the versions work on GitHub?
