Add a version number in the file name of the pdf proof

If the pdf proof is changed during the review process, because the author supplies amended files for example, the new pdf proof has the same filename as the previous version. This means that any editors or reviewers who have downloaded the pdf proof to read offline have no easy way to see whether a more recent version is available. Having a version number in the file name, which updates every time the pdf proof is regenerated, would provide more clarity and transparency when changes are made, and would allow everyone involved in the review process to be sure they are working with the latest version of the article.
