Mapping - Silktest Versions

Borland is using product names instead of versions for Silktest. We are using different versions of Silktest to execute our silktest suites. Sometimes it is confusing for testers, who is trying to execute silktest suites. Below I have given a mapping for product name and version.

SilkTest 2006 R28.5
SilkTest 20089.0
