[Fontconfig] Versioning scheme for fontconfig

I am a developer from the Autopackage <autopackage.org> project. I am
writing a skeleton to detect what interface and software version of
fontconfig is installed.

What is the difference between libfontconfig.so.1.0 and
libfontconfig.so.1.0.4. Have any functions been added? Why was the
software version bumped to 2.0, but the interface version kept the
same major and minor? Is there a table somewhere that maps interface
versions to software versions?
