Android app sdk version suffix

We have added an extra third character in the build version of appsdk to represent the android-x support in appsdk.

From onwards now you will see meter version of app sdk ending with 5 characters suffix as aa.8.2.0.0_{suffix} .

Below are details of possible suffix characters with description
