Hi Rizwan,

This statement refers to when releases of the Ensembl Genomes resource 
(https://ensemblgenomes.org/) was aligned to but didn't necessarily 
coincide with releases of the Ensembl resource 
(https://www.ensembl.org/index.html), and we would/could return multiple 
releases for Ensembl Genomes data or when the server provided access to 
more than one release of data. We suggest that you assume the 1st in the 
list is the current number.

Best wishes
