Version naming is ambiguous.
download labeled&htab;Identifies itself as V2.0 Beta 1&htab;v2.0-Beta V2.0 Beta 2&htab;v2.0.1-Beta

There's one milestone named V2.0b1 . Which one is this? If someone reports a bug in Beta 1, will he remember, what his download was labeled or does he refer to the .1 in the version number.

Furthermore, download files for V2.0 Beta 2 are again inconsistently tagged with
V2.0b2
2.0-beta1
2.0.1-Beta

What will be the final release number? It's bets if files, tags, and the like sort in a succeeding manner.

On a side note:
can the groups/milestones on this tracker be sorted descending and not default to a specific version number when creating a new entry?

    Sorry, I meant to try to create a table in the previous post, but forgot to preview-check it. Here again the label <-> version assignments in a hopefully readable format:

    download labeled | Identifies itself as 
    -----------------|---------------------
    V2.0 Beta 1      | v2.0-Beta 
    V2.0 Beta 2      | v2.0.1-Beta
