Re: NVDA 2018.3.1

Yes, as Joseph said, it's the way we number releases which appears like a date to some synthesizers.

We generally have four main releases a year, named the year, then .1, .2 etc, so NVDA 2018.3 is the third release of the year.  Just after releasing it, we discovered big issue for Firefox users, and because we didn't want to leave them until NVDA 2018.4, we released a "minor release" and identified it with .1 at the end - so NVDA 2018.3.1.  Theoretically, if we discovered another bug we wanted to fix before the next version, we would call it NVDA 2018.3.2.  The difference with those "point releases" is that they purely fix one issue, where a full release has many updates, fixes and new features.

I think this has to do more with number processing by speech synthesizers.
