questions on the .txt manifest

I apologize in advance for the question that may be dumb but i always wondered what is the difference between those two in the .txt manifest ? (i dont mean the number by itself but version and addonversion

Its not pointing at the addon version in both case ?

## Version: 6.8.1
## AddOnVersion: 680

Version was there at first.
Version is not used by the game itsself afaik but is used within Minion e.g. to check for the version of the addon. Maybe in other tools as well.

AddOnVersion was added later and must be an unsigned integer value so the ingame vanilla addon manager can check if you got multiple versions of the same addon (it's meant to be used with libraries!) and ONLY loads the newest version. This tag replaces the usage of the library LibStub which also assures that you only load the newest version (newest = locally available "with the highest integer value") of a library and no older ones.
