It makes me wonder which version number(s) Amiga Basic uses. I know it was shipped with Workbench 1.1 - 1.3 but the programming environment surely has its own version numbering. I tried to look it up on the Internet but found no obvious sources. Then again one could look at Microsoft QuickBASIC, released in 1985 supposedly as QB V1.0. The last version was V4.5 in 1988, so any argument that Commodore would've increased the version number on C128 Basic to match Microsoft's own programming languages makes no sense. One can also look at MSX Basic which pretty much followed the same version numbering as the MSX standard itself: MSX1 shipped with Basic V1.0/1.1/1.2, MSX2 shipped with V2.0, MSX2+ shipped with V3.0 and so on. It is quite possible that Commodore Basic V7 has the highest version number of all Microsoft derived Basics, only counting classic 8/16-bits. Well, not counting V10 in the unreleased Commodore 65 of course. Hm, isn't there a semi-official Basic V8 for C128 too?
