Version number of Kate syntax highlighting files

from today the version number of Kate syntax highlighting files has been realigned to the version number of the KDE repository, to simplify comparison for users who do not keep older copies of those files.
If a file has been edited to adapt it to TDE/fix errors/add extensions, the version number is followed by a dash and a progressive number, as suggested by Slavek a few weeks ago.
- KDE repo file: version=1.2.3
- TDE repo file without any change: version 1.2.3
- TDE repo file with changes: version 1.2.3-1

In future, if more local changes are done, the number after the dash will be increased. If the changes come from the KDE repo, the version number will be update accordingly and the number after the dash will restart from 1.

For the same reasons, I have also reverted kateversion="2.5" to be the same as in the KDE repo.

Most files have a version number that is either 0.01 or 0.1 less than the version number previously available in the GIT tree.
If you previously downloaded any file to your local ~/.trinity folder, please consider either deleting or updating it accordingly to prevent old version numbers to mask new files with lower version number.

The new files have just been pushed, so they should be available from tomorrow for update using the Kate GUI update dialog. Alternatively just update from the GIT repo directly.
