OK, so since no one made a post about this yet, then I'll do this.
These are some build numbers of PvZ from various sources (mostly from "The Making of PopCap's PvZ ")
The build dates (if present) are written in MM/DD/YYYY format
Lawn of the Dead 0.9.9.1030 - 05/09/2008 | | | | V V V V Product name Version Build - Build date
Product name: The game title during its development.
Build: "Subversion", always put behind the version number.
Build date: The date the game was compiled.
Early development versions don't have build numbers.
If the build date is not visible, then "Date unknown" will be added instead.
Italic: No information or existence doubtful
Bold: Information or pictures available
Bold italic: Leaked or released
Stuff marked with question mark, with or without parentheses: Speculation.

- Plants vs. Zombies!(?)/Lawn of the Dead 0.94 - 04/22/2008 (The pictures in the PowerPoint only shows "Lawn of the Dead" (from the title bar), however, the product name has changed to PvZ since 0.93, so I assume that PvZ is the actual name of this build)
- Plants vs. Zombies!(?)/Lawn of the Dead 0.95? - Date unknown (I believe that 0.95 exists, since the version numbers are probably incremental. However, it isn't mentioned anywhere in The Making of PopCap's PvZ)
