This idea was discussed a year or two ago, and it was agreed then that applications would keep their own version numbering, if desired.

The KDE Applications version is simply a date indication. It's very useful, for developers who want it, to be able to have an individual application version which has a meaning in functional terms.

I strongly disagree with this proposal to change version numbers.
