Below a bunch of links that should get me started.

From a quick glance: versioning is hard, comparing even harder.

On versioning in general

Numeric versioning (usually without wildcards):

On semantic versioning (SemVer for short):

On the C# Version class (which handles most of semantic versioning except: leading zero’s, very large numbers, non-numeric release specifiers)

Interesting idea, but not sustainable: using floating point values to compare versions:
