OK, so to recap, we have

     version numbers, which are documented on the web site
     API number, which I don't know how to determine
     ABI number, which I don't need to worry about

Is that about it?

Bottom line:

     I use a function from Geany.
     How do I know what number to plug in to GEANY_VERSION_CHECK()?
