I disagree on the between releases point. Plugin developers are asked
to develop against latest stable release of Geany. If they need
something more recent, they know what they are doing. 

My suggestion is to add this information with next API extensions. If
somebody likes to dig into source history and check, which API version
which API call is needed, I'm also fine with ;)
