It's Major, Minor, Build, and Revision numbers. It is a standard publish versioning scheme that Microsoft uses in applications generated using Visual Studio. http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/system.version(v=vs.110).aspx (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.
