Use $VersionNum -- it's easier (and designed for this purpose):

    if ($VersionNum < 2001967) {
        ... stuff prior to 2.2.0-beta67 ...
    } else {
        ... stuff 2.2.0-beta67 and later ...

$VersionNum is guaranteed to always be an increasing value from
one release to the next.  For the 2.2.0 official release $VersionNum
will be 2002000.
