To generate the metadata files of a specific version, you have to 
compile and install it.

I think this can be done automatically:

1) 'git checkout' the version tag.

2) './reconf-all && ./configure -C && make -j'

3) 'sudo make install'

4) copy the '/usr/share/gambas3/info' contents in a directory associated 
with the compile version.

5) Do all that for each version.
