As mentioned in other replies, there's the wiki page that maps API, ABI 
and other versions into a simple table.

IMO, plugin authors shouldn't have to bother with ABI numbers at all and 
API numbers should be transparent. If I want to write a plugin, I would 
like to have some boilerplate like:

     #include <geanyplugins.h>

     GEANY_PLUGIN_REGISTER(1, 24, 0, /* min supported geany version */
                           "Hello World",
                           "Another hello world",
                           "You <you at yourdomain.org>");

     void plugin_load(GeanyPlugin *plugin)
         g_print("Loading plugin '%s'...\n",

     void plugin_unload(GeanyPlugin *plugin)
         g_print("Unloading plugin '%s'...\n",
