It's Major, Minor, Build, and Revision numbers. It is a standard publish versioning scheme that Microsoft uses in applications generated using Visual Studio. (I am making an educated guess that Microsoft builds SQL Server using Visual Studio).

What each of those versions refers to, see here:

9.00.1399 is the RTM version of SQL Server 2005. You need to install service pack 4 and then consider one of the latest hotfixes for it. We run build 9.00.5294 on our SQL Server 2005 instances.
