Because we (audacious) release the player and the plugins seperately. This allows
for faster QA procedures to happen during the development workflow, as we don't
have to freeze development of both the player and the plugins, we can just
concentrate on one or the other. For instance, the latest audacious player is
1.3.2, and the latest plugins pack is 1.3.5.
