Hmm. Version 1.1 is definitely a valid version:
https://specifications.freedesktop.org/desktop-entry-spec/desktop-entry-spec-latest.html#idm45070351179248

But specifying a version is optional altogether, and I don't think it's helpful in any particular way. I can just drop the version numbers.

I'll do that, why not. But you might also want to file a bug against MATE - it's a totally valid desktop file as far as I can tell.
