Summary0001325: Use semver-compatible version numbers for pre-releases
DescriptionCurrently, the RC versions report a version like "2.4.0RC3". Semver specifies that a pre-release tag must be seperated with a hyphen, like "2.4.0-RC3", see

This imposes problems because I try to parse the version number in my debug extension as a semver version to find out if I can enable specific features, but the release candidate versions throw errors when trying to parse them. Please use semver-compatible pre-release tags in the future.
TagsNo tags attached.
Operating System
PHP Version7.0.5-7.0.9
