NuGet normalizes versions on publish

The Packages NuGet service now normalizes versions numbers on publish. An invalid semantic version (ex. v1.0.0.0.0.0) is not downloadable by NuGet clients and therefore a NuGet service is expected to normalize those versions (ex. v1.0.0.0.0.0 –> v1.0.0). Any original, non-normalized, version will be available in the verbatimVersion field. No changes to client configurations are required.
