The confusion probably stems from versions "five dot one" through "five dot nine" being written with a two-digit, left-padded number for the minor version ("5.09", which is "five dot nine" not "five and nine one-hundredths")
If you want to be that pedantic since Traveller is pseudo hexadecimal then is should be 5.0A
