We have a plugin called autoversion in Idofront that will automatically append a PATCH (third) version number. You can manually set the rest, ex. 0.8

Keep the version and group properties in a project's file and try to follow the MAJOR.MINOR pattern as described by semver, with the PATCH appended automatically by autoversion.

Use the develop branch to automatically create pre-releases with -dev.x appended to the end.
