You're attempting to parse software version numbers as rational
It should become apparent that this is unreasonable at the point at
which version numbers grow a third component (0.18.1).
Each component of a version number is an independent item, and should
be interpreted that way. 0.100, while less common than 0.10, is
perfectly valid, and is higher than 0.10 (since each component of the
version number is an independent integer, trailing zeros are
This is the most common version numbering scheme, and also the sanest.
