State explicitly whether a downloadable .mscz file is MuseScore version 2 or 3

Jan 30, 2019

... or at least state it for MuseScore v3 files to distinguish them stand out from the v1 and v2 files.

Since one cannot tell from the MuseScore file extension (.mscz) whether or not a file is V2 or V3, you have no way of telling whether the file you are downloading will open in your MuseScore 2, please consider adding the file version on the download page. Currently the link just states MuseScore, Open in MuseScore .

A workaround for a MuseScore 2 user downloading a V3 file, would be to download the MusicXML version instead, but this would save them the effort of downloading the unusable MuseScore 3 version file first. 

(We have a discussion about the file extension version number at https://musescore.org/en/node/283026 )
