The best way to achieve this in Matrix is to introduce some labels. In order to use them, you need to have the variants/labels module. 
You can define version-related labels (V1, V2.0, V2.1) and tag some requirements / specifications / tests with one or more labels, indicating to which version they apply.

When this is done, you can:

  • Filter the whole tree with respect to one or more label (or NOT label) via the filters available in the application header:

  • Produce a document with a given filter (so for example the V1.0 version of any document): See more explanation.

The Labels and filters are described here.
